Security through Containment

Securus Technologies is an information technology corporation that has been su[poprting inmates of the United States prison system since they first began their business in the early 2000’s. Securus supports their niche customer base by providing them new and advanced communications options so that they can stay in touch with their family members during these difficult times. An inmate only needs access to an internet connection to be able to use a video chat interface designed by Securus, allowing them a clean and seamless way for them to not only talk to their loved ones but to see them as well without the need for any form of physical visitation periods. With this, as well as other reliable forms of technology, Securus has many blessings to be proud of, but also many curses that have been created alongside them.

 

One of the biggest issues that Securus faces is the fact that many of their customers, or potential customers, have the potential to use their technology to continue to break the law. The ability to communicate with the outside world gives inmates the ability to bring contraband into the prison or jail, or the potential to control criminal activity outside of where they are being incarcerated. Securus sees this information as a hazard that needs to be matched with a solution, and in order to attempt to keep track and prevent these problems from occurring, they have been working hard to develop an all-encompassing monitoring system known as the wireless containment system.

 

The wireless containment system does basically what it says in its title; it locates unauthorized wireless signals and deactivates them. The way that it does this is very interesting. Securus Technologies plans on using this system as a virtual net, allowing them to identify any mobile or internet capable device, and deactivating the ability of the device to make further attempts. If this system proves to be functional then it would mean that it would drastically decrease the number of contraband cell phones being used, and may in fact also infringe on the prison drug trade.

 

It is currently unknown when the containment system will be put into motion. There is still much work to be done, testing to finish, and mandatory training to be addressed before anything can be properly administered. Once these kinks have been worked out, however, there is no doubt that Securus technologies will have a winner on their hands. This could change the way that communications operate, and not only that but how prisons and jails can increase their internal security.

Securus Technologies Offers Technology Challenge To GTL

In the business world, companies compete on a daily basis. Many of these companies compete in the same industry markets for customers. There are some industries that have more competition than others based on the type of products and services offered by the companies. One of the industries where the competition is highly competitive is the technology industry. Many companies provide technology related products and services to the public. Many of these companies offer the same products and services.

 

As a result, there are various companies in the technology industry that do not get along based on the competitive nature of the industry. Two of these companies are Securus Technologies and GTL. The two companies compete in the same technology markets and provide very similar technology related products and services.

 

With issues between the two companies that go back several years, Securus Technologies recently requested a technology bakeoff with GTL through a press release. The goal of the technology bakeoff would be to determine the company that provides the better technology to the public. Securus Technologies believes that it provides the better products and services. The company wants to do the technology bakeoff to prove it is a better company than GTL.

 

Securus Technologies wants to use an independent judge to determine the winner of the technology bakeoff. Securus Technologies listed many reasons why it feels that the company is better than GTL. I think that Securus Technologies really wants to have a technology bakeoff. I think that Securus Technologies is serious about the technology bakeoff, and the company wants to prove it is better than GTL.

 

While Securus Technologies has made an offer to have a technology bakeoff, GTL has not accepted the challenge.

 

Securus Technologies is a proven technology company that offers a variety of technology related products and services to safety related organizations that include public safety, corrections, and law enforcement. Securus Technologies also provides products and services to inmates.
