Securus Technologies is an information technology firm that is based in Dallas, Texas. In the past, the company has been a well-known producer of communications and security Technologies and focuses primarily on the United States penal system in order to develop a large customer base. Securus mainly draws its customer base from the inmates and security Personnel that work within the prison system. This means that a lot of times their customers are at certain disadvantages that other customers for different Information Technology corporations do not have to deal with. One such issue that many Securus companies suffer from is a heightened chance of becoming a victim or a contributor to criminal activity. One activity that is commonplace in the prisons and jails in the United States is the unauthorized use of cellular in mobile devices. The use of such devices could cause these individuals to continually break the law, even while behind bars. Criminal acts using cellular devices include drug deals, smuggling of Contraband into the prison system, as well as the possibility to commit atrocious acts such as murder. At the current time, it is extremely hard to Monitor and two disrupt the use of cellular devices within Prison Walls, although Securus technology solution to this problem.
The wireless containment system is the brainchild of Securus Technologies and the solution that they have come up with for the unauthorized cell phone issue. The way that the wireless containment system will work is that Securus Technologies will install the system within the prison or jail that has purchased service, which will then be used to place an invisible barrier around the location. This barrier will act as in net that will capture all incoming and outgoing signals that are being produced either through a Wi-Fi signal or network signal. once a Securus Technologies operator locates the signal, they have the ability to either accept the signal from traveling through the barrier or they can disable it at the source. The interesting thing about how the system operates Is that it will also have the ability to completely disable the device that the signal originated from. This would render the vice useless for future use, making Steeler Contraband nearly worthless to inmates.
It is unknown when Securus will be officially producing the containment systems within the walls of their customers, for what is for sure is that when they do begin to produce these incredible networking systems the prisons that they belong and will become much better places to be work in. This is just one other reason why Securus Technologies can be considered a humanitarian Corporation, as it is looking out for the best interest of its customers.
