Securus Technologies is a firm, which deals with the provision of secure and reliable civil and criminal justice technology. The company has its operations based in Texas, and it serves more than 3000 correction facilities, penitentiaries, and prisons. Securus Technologies offers technology to those facilities, which allow prisoners to keep in touch with their families and friends. Their technology is also helpful in cases of emergencies. The technology is also substantially in helping in record keeping. Providing inmates with such services in crucial under the United States law. Securus services are also leveraged to propagate public safety.
Richard Smith, the firm’s Chief Executive Officer, announced that the company had made a significant acquisition of a fast growing company, Jpay in 2015. According to Securus’ CEO, the acquisition would foster Securus Technologies’ upscaling of its technological innovations and as such, offer excellently reliable services to the prison industry. The firm intended to provide its services to 33 additional facilities.
Securus Technologies issued a press release on February 22, 2016. The press release was designed to correct some inaccuracies inherent in GTL’s press release dated February 19.
GTL leveled claims that the PTAB served as the final decision makers and had made a ruling against Securus Technologies. The United States law offers a chance for an appeal, which would otherwise render the decision of the PTAB legal before the appeal. Apparently, GTL insinuated that Securus Technologies played down the PTAB members. Securus Technologies stood against the statement as its impact on the suit would be negative.
GTL ultimately failed to honor a technology challenge supplied to them. Apparently, GTL was disturbed with the idea that they would lose. The significant investment in technology by Securus is an indicator that they will continue to create more innovations. The legality for filing for a patent regarding any product is indisputable. Thus, the seeking of a patent by Securus Technologies for an $800 million software is merited. For a long time, Securus has been providing technology to law enforcement agencies to help manage correction facilities.
