Security is such a big deal that a company like Securus Technologies has grown into the capacity of keeping over 1,000 employees constantly busy serving the United States and Canada. Securus Technogies is an information and communication technologies company (ICT) that has specialized in developing technologies that enhance the communication integrity in American and Canadian correctional and holding facilities. It directly determines how secure the 2,200 prison communities it services and their neighbors get. The company is based in Texas but has numerous offices across the two countries.
Securus Technologies focuses on limiting all the communications done in the prisons and detention centers it serves to the confines of law. One of the major advantages that inmates enjoy from the company’s services is that it allows them to keep in touch with their loved ones at subsidized prices. While enhancing the economy of prisoners, the company also enhances the security of prisons by preventing illegal communications between inmates with other inmates and their outside criminal contacts. The company dedicates a lot of time and other resources specifically to that end.
According to reports by PR Newswire, Securus develops new technologies every week to prevent illegal prison communications. The company has been known to develop cutting edge technologies and has since its entry into the market spent over 600 million dollars on patents and intellectual patents. The company management is so committed to innovation that it partners with other leading IT firms to develop technologies that make its activities as efficient as possible. Its most recent partnership was with the Harris Corporation and it led to the creation of the ‘’cell defender’’. The lovechild creation was an absolutely ingenious configuration that prevents contraband mobile devices from connecting with mobile networks within assigned correctional and holding facilities.
According to letters written to Securus by concerned and grateful stakeholders, the company has had a general positive impact on the security status of prisons they serve and even those that they don’t serve since the inter-prison crime syndicates have been rendered ineffective. Coordinated attacks on inmates, prison officials, and their families have been much difficult to perpetrate with the services that Securus has been delivering.
