In Defense of Securus Technologies

The law enforcement industry is an extremely tough industry to be involved in. There are companies, such as Securus Technologies that work every day to create and improve technology to help this industry to have an edge with their job. Working with this type of technology leads to strong competition and disputes.


Recently, Global Tel Link put out a press release stating many issues they had with Securus Technologies. A few days later, Securus Technologies responded to many of the claims made by GTL. The main idea behind the issues Global Tel Link had to do with patents and who should be using them. GTL claims that Securus Technologies has no right to use them and should cease using them immediately. Securus responded by saying that the patents in question have not been restricted by anyone. They are still in play and can be used freely. Some of the patents and issues in question are not even able to be patented and are free to use.


GTL also claims that Securus Technologies is very quick to sue and that they spend too much time in court. Securus Technologies hit back hard on this issue saying that heading to court is a last resort measure. They try to resolve all disputes civilly and responsibly out of court first. If that does not work, then the court option comes up. Securus Technologies does have a right to defend themselves and this is exactly what they are doing.


Securus Technologies is a technology company that is based in Dallas, Texas. They work with over 3,400 law enforcement agencies and corrections facilities across North America. They work to bring the most advanced technology to these facilities and help aid them in their efforts.
