Securus Technologies highlights inaccuracies in GTL’s press release

// Published January 4, 2017 by User1

Some of the statements made by GTL in an initial press release seem to have contained misleading information. It is for this reason that Securus Technologies, on June 9th, came up with another press release. This time, the press release was intended to correct the wrong statements made by GTL.

Over six statements in the GTL press release were corrected. The main focus was, however, in the patent litigation process. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard A. Smith, questions the approach that GTL is trying to use to handle the matter. Richard states that it doesn’t make sense that GTL is using the “scorched earth” approach. This is because patent litigation is not a simple process and takes many years, not mentioning the millions of dollars needed. Richard thinks that this approach isn’t logical considering the fact that Securus Technology has a better patent portfolio.

Securus Technologies is tasked with being at its best each time it provides a service and information. The company recently received a rating of A+ from the BBB. Such an accreditation by the BBB comes with huge responsibilities. Going by this, any information coming from Securus Technologies, including its press releases, has to be accurate and trustworthy. This is why the company is obligated to make such corrections. He, however, puts it clear that the company will keep defending itself against the attacks by GTL and at the same time, assert its own patents. Richard goes on to ask GTL to a technology bake-off challenge, something GTL is yet to respond to.
