Securus’ Guarded Exchange Routinely Extracts Important Information from Confiscated Illegal Wireless Devices for Law Enforcement and Corrections

“Cracking” of Wireless Devices Prevents and Solves Crimes, and Keeps Incarcerated Individuals, Friends/Family, Officers and all of Society Safe

DALLAS, TX April 27, 2016/PRNewswire/–Securus Technologies, a leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring announced today that it partners with law enforcement and corrections officers to extract data from confiscated wireless devices and expects to complete analysis on +1,500 wireless units by the end of 2016. “Our forensics laboratory has the technology and people to assist law enforcement in accessing information contained in contraband wireless devices – that is one of the many products that Guarded Exchange has developed,” said Richard A. (“Rick”) Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies. “We purchased Guarded Exchange on October 30, 2015 but partnered with them as far back as 2011 when we won the Missouri DOC contract as a team.” “Guarded Exchange software allows corrections and law enforcement to interface with information residing in databases to provide a comprehensive social link analysis, and uses live Investigative Analysts to monitor offender calls,” said Steve Schneider and Steve Dean, Managing Directors of Guarded Exchange. “We staff our secure Investigative Center with Licensed Private Investigators and our facility customers can be assured that trained, professional personnel are the assets aiding in their investigations. We also provide Digital Forensic Services for recovered cell phones, computers, and other digital devices utilizing focused technologies for the individual situation. We staff that area with Certified Forensic Examiners and the right tools to get results.” Below are a few customer comments regarding Guarded Exchange’s ability to crack contraband wireless units:
  • “Their Forensics Laboratory has exceeded all of my and the department’s expectations;”
  • “Guarded Exchange has done more in one day than we were able to accomplish in a month;”
  • “I can’t believe Guarded Exchange was able to do the phone analysis this fast. If we submitted through normal channels it would take 8 to 12 months and we never got an intelligence report. This is simply amazing!”
  • “Regarding case [Confidential], so much information was generated, it is truly amazing!”
“No one that serves prisons and jails does the full service work that Guarded Exchange does – real-time call monitoring, real-time investigations, real-time data analysis, cell phone and mobile data extraction, certified forensics analysts, certified private investigators, and dedicated Securus and Guarded Exchange Associates to help investigators do the best job possible,” said Smith.
