A regional one court of the US rejected objections filed by Kaspersky Lab supporting a ban on the company's software on federal agency computers.
Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, who met in Washington, issued the decision on Wednesday rejecting the two lawsuits that Kaspersky had filed against the United States and the Department of Homeland Security.
Recall that the use of the products of Kaspersky, a Moscow-based security company, was banned in all government agencies services of the US after the company was involved in a story espionages. The company was accused of acquiring access in top secret data of the NSA.
Kaspersky had filed two lawsuits challenging the government's charges, arguing that they violated the Fifth Amendment. But on Wednesday, Judge Kollar-Kotelly ruled summarily that both of Kaspersky's objections lacked merit and that the products will continue to be unused by government agencies.
For her part, Kaspersky said she would refer the cases to the Court of Appeals, seeking to overturn Kollar-Kotelly's decision.
Kaspersky Lab supports that these actions are the product of unconstitutional practices and wrongfully accuse the company without "substantiated evidence."
