Hi
Due to the recent events in Iran, the United States government implemented the D-2 order yesterday
In a part of the order, antivirus companies are allowed to provide services to Iran
I wanted to know if Eset can provide services to Iranians or not?
Thanks

متأسفانه من هیچ اطلاعی ندارم که آیا اخیراً چیزی در مورد تحریم تغییر کرده است. لطفاً برای اطلاعات بیشتر با ESET ME ( https://www.eset.com/me/ ) تماس بگیرید.

Of note:

GL D-2 continues to authorize anti-virus and anti-malware software; anti-tracking software; mobile operating systems and related software; anti-censorship tools and related software; Virtual Private Network (VPN) client software; and related software. These tools protect the ability of Iranians to engage in free expression and bravely resist regime oppression.

It appears that security software was never included in the original embargo/export directive.

Note that Eset is not a U.S. based company.

Eset is based in Slovakia. Its marketing practices are governed by that county's business restrictions and also those employed by the EU of which it is a member.

It appears Eset corporate has adopted a policy to unilaterally restrict sales to any country on U.S. embargo/export list. As such, GL D-2 would have no impact on this decision.

Quote

ESET does not export/re-export to any country in which US embargo is imposed (Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria) or any other sanctioned countries. Additionally, ESET does not export or re-export to any person or entity included on the DENIED PERSONS LIST, ENTITY LIST OR UNVERIFIED LIST. The aforementioned lists are revised on a regular basis by the Bureau of Industry and Security.

توجه داشته باشید:

به نظر می رسد که نرم افزار امنیتی هرگز در دستورالعمل اصلی تحریم/صادرات گنجانده نشده است.

توجه داشته باشید که Eset یک شرکت مستقر در ایالات متحده نیست.

Eset در اسلواکی مستقر است. شیوه‌های بازاریابی آن توسط محدودیت‌های تجاری آن شهرستان و همچنین محدودیت‌های استخدام شده توسط اتحادیه اروپا که عضو آن است، کنترل می‌شود.

به نظر می رسد شرکت Eset سیاستی را اتخاذ کرده است که به طور یکجانبه فروش را به هر کشوری که در فهرست تحریم/صادرات ایالات متحده قرار دارد محدود می کند. به این ترتیب، GL D-2 هیچ تاثیری بر این تصمیم نخواهد داشت.

Hello,

I have forwarded the information on to the responsible parties at ESET.  This does not mean there will be any immediate change to how ESET's software is sold, though.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky
