"AmnAfzar, a company owned or controlled by Rasool Jalili, has provided technological support, or goods or services to or in support of, the activities described in subsection (a)(i) of section 5 of E.O. 13628. Rasool Jalili, the founder of AmnAfzar, remains the company's largest shareholder and the head of its steering committee. Rasool Jalili's relationship with government and military officials is one of AmnAfzar's key competitive advantages. Many ISPs in Iran use an integrated software and hardware system known as Separ, produced by AmnAfzar, which can monitor web traffic and block political websites and internet communications. AmnAfzar also produces, among other things, filtering and monitoring hardware and software, including Separ Web Filter, Saran Web Filter, Squid Escort Web Filter, and Alal Web Filter. The filters remove “illegal” web content as defined by Iranian cyber policy criteria. For instance, Separ Web Filter is a URL filtering device that removes “illegal” internet content and analyzes web traffic. It is capable of real-time inspection of transmitted data, deep URL inspection, and includes a filtering database that is updated regularly. It also includes real-time monitoring capabilities. AmnAfzar’s Squid Escort filtering system is an internet filtering software that can filter by address, user name, internet address type, group and origins. Another product produced by AmnAfzar, Parsgate, provides for content filtering, traffic authentication, instant messaging (IM) and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) filtering, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) monitoring and filtering, and other services. AmnAfzar also provided an email and attachment monitoring system for use by the Iranian Government." 1
