I hear a lot about various types of corruption that takes place in the prison system, but there are some companies that are out there and fighting that corruption in a big way. There are companies that put out products that may not be made specifically for the purpose of fighting corruption but that help in a fight for justice just the same. Securus Technologies is one of those companies.
When a set of letters was shared, letters that were written by those who are pleased with the work that Securus Technologies has done, those letters were powerful. One of the letters that I read shared how Securus Technologies had helped a corrupt staff member get caught through access to phone conversations that were made by that individuals. Another letter that was shared about the good that Securus Technologies is doing talked about how this company and its products are helping to stop drug deals that are going down in prisons.
Securus Technologies is a company that is there to help with communication. This is a company that works with prisons and their inmates. This is a company that puts out great products, and it is a company that I feel is doing a lot to help in the fight for justice.
Securus Technologies is the leading provider of the criminal justice technology solutions to the incarcerated. Their goal is to improve the experience of the inmates during the incarceration period while at the same time ensuring public safety. Their services include emergency response, incident management, public information, communication, verification, running investigations, biometric analysis, and monitoring of products and services. They have their headquarters in Dallas, Texas offering services to over 3450 correctional facilities and over 1.2 million inmates in North America. Visit here.
Securus Technologies has hundreds of patents, and it recently gave corrections of the inaccurate and misleading press release by the Global Tel Link’s (GTL). Securus made it clear that PTAB did not validate the patent and GTL will not have the ability to seek an injunction. GTL went ahead and claimed that PTAB had preserved 55 claims of the 816 patent that allows monitoring of the video visitations for security purposes in the correctional facilities. On the contrary, Securus stated that the lawsuit that GTL filed against them consists of one independent claim and the other claims are dependent of the 816 patent. They clarified that GTL does not have the security feature in the one independent claim.
Secures technologies made the clarifications of four other inaccurate claims stated by GTL press release and confirmed that they would continue to defend themselves against the companies attacks. Pursuing a patent litigation may take GTL several years and requires a lot of income and Securus CEO, Richard A Smith questions whether this serves the interests of the company including their financial goals. However, Mr. Smith stated his company’s interests to initiate its technology bake-challenge for the second time with GTL who they did not respond to earlier.
