Securus Technologies Awarded 101st Patent

DALLAS, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Securus Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of inmate communications services, today announced it has been awarded its 101st patent.  Securus leads its industry in the number of patents awarded and has far more patents than the rest of the competitors in the industry combined.

With more than 100 associates dedicated to software development, Securus is committed to leading its industry in developing and deploying leading-edge technology that makes a difference in people's lives.  The company creates software that helps families stay together during difficult times; reduces inmate recidivism; makes communities safer; improves correctional facility security; protects witnesses, judges, and victims; and, aids law enforcement in crime prevention and investigation.   New software is deployed multiple times each year on Securus' Secure Call Platform (SCP) so that customers always have access to the latest technology.

Securus' technology leadership has translated to market share growth.  Over the past three years the company has consistently gained more new revenue from new contracts than any other competitor.  Joshua Conklin, Securus' Vice President of Sales stated, "Correctional facilities clearly see the benefits from our technology and recognize the importance of our call platform architecture which allows us to implement new features once they are ready for market."

Dennis Reinhold, Vice President and General Counsel for Securus said, "I am proud to have exceeded the 100 patent milestone.  That, combined with our 41 pending patents evidences our commitment to strengthen, expand and protect our cutting-edge technologies.  Our patent portfolio is so strong that you can't operate in this business legally without a patent license from Securus."

Securus remains dedicated to serving the needs of correctional facilities across the country.  Leading the industry in developing and deploying software is a core commitment of the company.
