Their Managed Access Solutions feature which allows for monitoring and investigation is the most popular spec in the company. Five Departments in Correctional facilities in the US gladly welcomed the idea and pledged their stamp of approval.

The effectiveness of the investigative tools goes to the level of accessing a suspicious conversation, potential threat and complaint of harassment.
A customer reported said that the Securus Technologies help them obtain a search warrant for a corrupt staff through the Managed Access Solutions. On another instance, a brother is heard on the recorded voice calls advising an inmate who has never been in trouble, how to respond.
