SecureAlert, Inc. Featured in Businessweek Article on Cutting-Edge Use of Data Analytics

SANDY, UT--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - SecureAlert, Inc. (OTCBB: SCRA) (OTCQB: SCRA), a national leader in offender intervention and tracking technologies widely used by public safety agencies throughout the United States and expanding globally, has been featured in a major article on cutting-edge data analytics in Businessweek, the Bloomberg online magazine.

The article, titled "Data Analytics: Crunching the Future," by technology writer Ashlee Vance, discusses not only SecureAlert's state-of-the-art ReliAlert™ GPS Tracking technology, which includes both RF and GPS capabilities along with 2- and 3-way communication on a single device, but also highlights the sophistication of the Company's unique multi-communication Intervention Monitoring Center. Importantly, the Company provides customizable solutions for offender types, ranging from violent criminals and sexual predators to juvenile offenders and alcohol abusers, as well as remote support and information for law enforcement officers.

The article focused on the use of a new generation of analytics technology for anticipating and predicting behaviors and describes how SecureAlert's Intervention Monitoring Center is growing in its use of data from its tamper resistant-alarmed ankle-bracelet and cut-resistant cuff, worn by perpetually tracked and persistently monitored offenders in order to identify patterns of suspicious behavior, thus potentially allowing law enforcement to interact with offenders before a crime happens.

"We were very pleased to be featured so prominently in this article, which discusses how anticipatory data management and advanced analytics technology is providing a future framework for greater public safety, associated with real time tracking and intervention monitoring of offenders," said John L. Hastings III, President and CEO of SecureAlert. "Thanks to our technology vision and data mining expertise, we have created a unique interactive combination of hardware (our ReliAlert cuff) and software (our proprietary real time and interactive Monitoring Center software), which we believe puts us far ahead of any competitors in our abilities to provide both cost-effective law enforcement solutions, as well as enhanced information and insights, all in an effort to promote the safe and effective re-socialization of a wide range of offenders," continued Hastings. "Importantly, our proprietary Intervention Monitoring Center also strengthens our business as a source of recurring revenue, as it serves as the cornerstone for our worldwide expansion and global offender management solution delivery. As we announced earlier, our system's efficiency and competitive differentiation is rapidly attracting new business opportunities from all areas of the world, not only from across the United States, but also from Canada, Latin America, the Bahamas, Australia, Europe and others, driving an increase in our fiscal third quarter revenues by 44% over the same period 2010," concluded Hastings.
