Conflict between Securus Technologies and the Global Tel Link (GTL) Press

GTL media has recently been at loggerheads with Securus Technologies for releasing unfounded information to the public. Securus has decided to release a statement to defend itself against the GTL inaccurate reporting as a way of protecting their reputation.


Securus Technologies is an organization specializing in offering civil and criminal justice with technology solutions that will help the correction facilities with investigations, corrections, monitoring, and safety to the inmates and the public. The main offices of the company are located in Dallas Texas.


Securus Technologies play a fundamental role in Texas as it serves over 3000 public safety, correction and law enforcement agencies. Besides, the correction facility is the home to around 1.2million inmates spread in various parts of the world. The organization is highly devoted to delivering quality services and connections. They are in the forefront in ensuring access to emergency responses to inmates and staff, incident management, providing public information, aiding communication and biometric evaluation among others.


With this kind of responsibility, the correctional facility management had to release a formal statement counteracting the inaccurate information from GTL. The organization decided to adopt this method instead of suing GTL to save time and money involved in litigations.


One of the allegations leveled against Securus by GTL is that it has been using GTL patented technologies. The correction facility brushes this information and denies using GTL video technology.


Therefore, Securus believes that litigation path GTL are considering, is illogical. Securus technologies will win the case, and the GTL will be disadvantaged. However, Securus are ready to challenge GTL’s technology, defending themselves as well as asserting their patents as a way of responding to the attacks.


Securus is no doubt ahead of GTL in terms of technology usage as they have united with JPay to provide the correction centers with digital payments platforms, education and entertainment among others.
