Securus Technologies is an information technology corporation that specializes in offering high level products in both security and communications to its customer base. The company has existed in the market for a period of time now and is based out of the incredible city of Dallas, Texas. What makes Securus such an interesting company is the customers they support themselves; incarcerated individuals currently serving time within the United States prison system. In order to offer these customers the highest of support they need to provide them with the latest in technological advancements. Unfortunately, Securus has recently been under attack by another company in the same industry, GTL, who claims that a majority of Securus product patents have recently expired. If true this would mean that Securus Technologies needs to make their products available to the open business market for fair use. After doing some research of their own, however, Securus, alongside some of their third party allies, have discovered that these claims are false and that they still maintain complete ownership of their patent codes.
Securus technologies is most notable for offering inmates reliable ways to communicate with their family members and loved ones. One such product they offer is a free downloadable application for both Apple and Android devices that allows them to talk through video conferencing. This application works over a WiFi signal and allows family members to avoid the need to physically visit with the inmate. This saves time and money on transportation, as well as the inconvenience and uncomfortable nature of security check stations at prisons.
What Securus Technologies offers its customers is both peace of mind and the ability to bypass borders by crossing them digitally. They offer incredible support to who they represent and thanks to these accusations being found untrue can continue onward.
