Securus Technologies is a leader in providing technology solutions in the field of criminal justice. The primary goal of the firm has been to better the lives of prisoners during their time in correction facilities. The company thus provides an array of services ranging from public information, monitoring services, monitoring products, biometric systems, verification, and video monitoring services. Securus is a big company that avails its services to correction facilities. It has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas. The company has provided its services to more than 3,500 correction facilities. The total number of inmates that benefit from the company’s services is more than 1 million.

 

I think that Securus Technologies is a highly successful company. The firm has managed to outdo its competitors like GTL in the prison technology industry. I find that GTL has tried to come out of the competition by spoiling Securus name. GTL has made several accusations and claims for damages and injunctions. Securus has come out and stated that all such claims are false. GTL stated that Securus infringed its rights by using its technologies protected by one of the patents. GTL has no evidence that Securus infringed its rights or that Securus used its Technologies. GTL has gone to insist that the Patent Trial and Appeals Board has preserved most of the patents used by the company.

 

Securus came out in a public press release and refuted all claims by GTL. It stated that the company has its technologies protected by its patents. The company further declared that the PTAB could not rule the case. The case can only be ruled when Securus Technologies and GTL go to court. It is obvious that Securus is going to win because GTL has no evidence. One patent claimed by GTL was that of number 816. The PTAB itself has refused to review any claims made against Securus.
