Integrity is one of the core values that Securus Technologies has strived to maintain in all its deals and operations in the corrections space. Therefore, when GTL released a press full of mistakes and discrepancies, Securus moved swiftly to paint the real picture to the corrections world by rectifying the inaccuracies.
Securus confirmed that it is moving for rehearing on U.S. patent no. 7,256,816 contrary to the GTL’s statements that the United States Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) had validated its claims. Securus also confirmed that the rehearing dates are yet to be announced. The firm also stated that it is not using GTL’s patented technologies in any of its video visitation platforms. Thus, GTL has no evidence or basis to file an infringement lawsuit against Securus.
Securus Technologies has built strong connections and partnerships with other major players in the corrections sector to improve the quality of solutions it delivers to its clients. It also signed a couple of license deals with GTL. However, Out of greed, GTL has been making several trips to courts and spending millions of dollars to engage in legal tussles with Securus over patents instead of renewing license agreements.
Securus Technologies has become a force in the corrections sector due to its revolutionary products and solutions that address challenges that corrections agencies face. It serves over one million detainees and more than 2,000 law enforcement and corrections facilities. The company develops products that aid corrections agencies to carry out biometric analysis, incident management, respond to emergencies, and investigation. It ensures incarcerated persons are communicating with their loved ones on a regular basis.
