"Software company SAP SE admitted it provided millions of dollars in software to Iran in violation of U.S. sanctions, becoming the first company to benefit from a Justice Department program that encourages companies to self-report criminal export violations in exchange for leniency, U.S. authorities said Thursday. Between 2010 and 2017, the German enterprise-software giant sent upgrades and software patches more than 20,000 times to users in Iran, and allowed its cloud businesses to give 2,360 Iranian users access to U.S.-based cloud services, the Justice Department said."
