Last week, before the start of the RSA conference in San Francisco, CrowdStrike filed for a restraining order and injunction in a federal court, seeking to prevent NSS Labs from releasing the results of a recent NSS' Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) group test.
The court, ruling that CrowdStrike failed to demonstrate success on merits, sided against the security vendor on Monday.
In April of last year, CrowdStrike entered into an agreement with NSS Labs to conduct private testing of their Falcon platform. According to CrowdStrike, NSS Labs failed to perform the tests in an accurate and acceptable fashion. NSS Labs conducted additional testing, in order to address the reported shortcomings, but CrowdStrike was still less than impressed.
