AdaptiveMobile Security Ltd. ended its contracts with an Iranian phone company following the disclosure that the closely held firm supplied and serviced technology for monitoring and storing text messages.
AdaptiveMobile, based in Dublin, stopped doing business with MTN Irancell, Iran’s second-largest mobile provider, as of May 24, according to United Against Nuclear Iran, a New York-based advocacy organization that pressures companies to cut business ties to Iran. The group cited an e-mail from AdaptiveMobile.
“We applaud AdaptiveMobile for ending its business in Iran,” said Kristen Silverberg, president of United Against Nuclear Iran, in a statement. “AdaptiveMobile has made the responsible decision, and we encourage other telecommunications companies to follow suit.”
