Control over Security

Securus Technologies is a state-of-the-art communications firm based out of Dallas, Texas. This is a relatively well-known company within the United States and produces security, communications and project management applications for use in the United States penal system. Most of their products are aimed at offering communication solutions to their customers, which are primarily inmates serving time with in prisons scattered throughout the different states. These individuals, like many other American citizens need to have opening forms of communication with family members and loved ones. Due to their living circumstances though this could prove to be difficult to accomplish and Securus Technologies has produced several free applications for use on mobile devices in order to reach these goals. These applications are free to download and use, being supported on both Apple and Android devices. They offer seamless streaming technology for crystal clear and high-definition video feeds to transfer from one device to the other through Wi-Fi signals. While these products are very high quality and are in use with over 1.5 million customers at this point in time Securus Technologies itself as a company has been put under fire from information technology giant GTL.


GTL claims that multiple patents for Securus products have recently expired, which means that the company itself no longer owns the rights to these products any longer and have become open source for anyone who wishes to use them. These claims have recently been proven inaccurate, as Securus personnel, alongside third-party agents, have discovered that the patents are still valid and Securus still controls all of them. This is good news for Securus as I can continue to develop and innovate its services and applications for the customers, who still show loyalty to the company despite what the media has been reporting.


Video Connections Through Securus Are Everlasting

My mother was sent to prison on trumped-up charges for drug possession long ago, and we have attempted to maintain a connection over these many years. Her incarceration has been a strain on the family, and I have moved away for college and various jobs over time. This article explains how I am using Securus to stay in touch with my mother after years of being away from home.

#1: Traveling Home Is No Longer An Option

Traveling home is no longer an option for me as a son, and I cannot speak to my mother over the telephone and be completely-satisfied. I may see my mother on the Securus camera once I make my call, and we have a genuine connection that makes chatting easy.

#2: I Feel At-Ease On Securus

I feel quite at-ease on Securus, and my mother and I chat as if we are sitting in a corner coffee shop. We will have our chance to do so in the future when she is released, and I feel as though we are practicing for the future. Securus, in my mind, is the most family-friendly prison phone-calling system.

#3: Securus Is Easy To Use

I am not a technically-inclined person who uses mobile apps all that often, and I was concerned that I would be terrible at using Securus. I have been using Securus successfully for some time, and I have not botched any calls since I started using the program. I feel much better about this app than the apps people use every day.

My mother and I have a deep connection that has been maintained through the telephone over several years. I feel confident about the video calls I place through Securus, and I am proud to say that my relationship with my mother has not suffered.
