Securus secures acceptance of MAS technology

Securus Technologies has secured the final acceptance by all three Department of Corrections (DOC) facilities for installed managed access systems (MAS), the company said.

The company said it will have contracts for four additional facilities to be installed by October, 2016. MAS distinguishes between legitimate wireless device use and allows those calls/messaging to proceed in a normal way, but does not allow contraband units/signals to leave the facility. It represents the only technology that is 100 perfect foolproof.

Securus has made a USD40+ million investment in MAS with its purchase of CellBlox, the purchase of MAS patents, its exclusive agreement to deploy technology developed by Vanu Tactical, Inc., and is committed to making additional investments in this area to help correctional agencies eliminate their number one challenge — contraband cellphones.

Securus Technologies is a telecom company that provider civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring by providing emergency response, incident management, public information, investigation, biometric analysis, communication, information management, inmate self-service and monitoring products and services.
