Security of the Future

With technology becoming the beast that it is there is always the issue with new forms of security in order to match individuals who seek to test the boundaries. This is the case with communications in the United States penal system. In the modern day world, everyone seems to be connected to the internet, and even inmates are allowed the ability to access the internet and use its wealth of information when they are able. Inmates have the ability to rent out tablets in some prisons, a fact that rewards good behavior but at the same time comes with its own set of issues. What if a convicted criminal want to continue to break the law while they are currently locked away? They have the ability, through access to the internet, to directly communicate with unsavory individuals and set up criminal acts even if they are not physically present. It is for this reason and others that Securus Technologies is trying to do their part to monitor and make changes to how inmates access the world wide web.


Securus Technologies is a well-known information technology firm that has famously targeted inmates and their family members as a niche customer base. They have released a series of different products to their customers, with one of their most popular services being a relatively inexpensive video chat interface that inmates can use to bypass security checks and physical visitation periods in order to virtually speak and see their loved ones instead. This service has allowed inmates to connect with others like never before, but, as already stated, has opened up a veritable can of worms that has proven hard to close.


In order to combat unauthorized calls and internet signals, Securus Technologies is in development of what they call a wireless containment system. When operational the system will act as a sort of blanket around a prison or jail and will monitor and keep track of every signal that goes through the affected area. The operator of the system will be informed of all signals through the system and will have the ability to either allow them to connect or cancel them. The device accessing the signal will then be located and identified through a unique IP address. The operator of the wireless containment system can then choose to forever block the device is need be, making contraband cell phones use extremely difficult to continue.


This new system promises to revolutionize the way that internal security works in the prison system. It will allow Securus Technologies to once again make their mark across the nation and has the potential to be a major game changer in the future.

Changing Dating and Networking with Whitney Wolfe

Last year, 28-year old Whitney Wolfe changed the atmosphere in the dating scene. She launched a dating app for women. The app allows women to look for their ideal men instead of waiting for men to initiate. While it was just supposed to be a business idea, the app changed the prevailing culture and created a lot of reaction from people.

This app is not just helping women to find eligible men. It is giving them power and confidence to go for what they want. Traditionally, men start the conversation or attention of the woman. Today, the world is different and women should not be misunderstood if they make their first move.

The success of this app has also encouraged women entrepreneurs. Whitney Wolfe is just a young woman under thirty years but she was not afraid to exploit her potential. Before, Whitney launched Bumble; she worked in an environment that did not satisfy her zeal. It inspired her to quit that job and start her own venture. Today, Whitney Wolfe is glad she followed her desired because they have paid off greatly. Whitney is encouraging other young women to follow suit. They should not be intimidated by the environment.

Recently, Bumble introduced another category for business networking. Bumble Bizz allows professionals to interact and share knowledge or ideas. People are wondering whether it is replacing LinkedIn but they are just competitors. It is good for business people and professionals to have several options to use.

Whitney Wolfe was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. She went to Southern Methodist University. She did a course in social sciences and did community work after college. Whitney even traveled to Southern Asia to work in orphanages. While doing all this work, Whitney probably never knew she would develop interest in technology and business.

Besides work and entrepreneurship, Whitney is a wife to Michael Wolfe. They got married in a color and beautiful wedding in 2017. The achievements of Whitney Wolfe are not just for her fulfillment. They are an inspiration to women. Whitney is a symbol of innovation and doing things differently.

The world may be dominated by men in many areas. However, women need to take up opportunities of changing the playing field. They are entitled to make positive changes in the society. Today it is no longer a big issue when a woman approaches a man. Thanks to Bumble App for changing that stereotypical view that has lasted for many years.
