Securus communication Ltd was founded by Brett Rowe some 20 years ago with the aim of filling the communication gap in correction facilities throughout the United States.
The firm was formally known as T-Netix, Inc, later in 2004 September 9th Evercom System Inc.and T-Netix Inc. joined to form the now Securus Technologies. Since then it has evolved through the years.
