Products and services
The company introduced a new platform and system to control contraband cell phones. The feature saw Securus receive the approval of more than five Departments of Corrections, a great feat due to their expert Managed Access Solutions. The Harris Corporation partnered with Securus Technologies in July of 2016 on the Cell Defender Technology. The partnership led to the upgrading of the system in 2017 to a wireless Containment Solution. The latest move is meant to control the widespread use of Contraband Cell Phones, from getting access to the main mobile networks.
