NSS
NSS Labs accused AMTSO and the three security vendors of unfairly allowing their products to be tested only by organizations that comply with the AMTSO. Lawsuit after lawsuit. Do the right thing to avoid problems.

Re: Wrong side of history
Open, transparent, standards a la AMTSO and NetSecOPEN, are the way forward. I would agree. Open standards less trouble in long terms.

Re: Wrong side of history
To publish a vendor's test results at RSA and stand by those results steadfastly for more than two years Agree. Damage is already made. Nothing will change.

Illegally?
in a lawsuit, which alleged that the testing was incomplete and conducted using illegally obtained Falcon software, If it was obtained illegally then that is where the problem starts.

Wrong side of history
To publish a vendor's test results at RSA and stand by those results steadfastly for more than two years before finally walking back and apologizing for them being inaccurate is a pretty high octane error.

Credibility duly - severely - dented.

As a one-off, it ought to be recoverable.

However at a far broader level - witness the ongoing lawsuit against AMTSO - NSS Labs is just on the wrong, wrong side of cyber security testing history.

Open, transparent, standards a la AMTSO and NetSecOPEN, are the way forward.

Seems to me that NSS Labs is committing John Chambers' cardinal sin of missing - worse, trying to resist - a market transition.
