Boost Your Dealership’s Security With These Tips


Dealership Security Tips

In 2017, news of cybersecurity threats to personal and business information systems across a wide variety of markets dominated headlines. From credit bureaus to higher education, government, banking, retail, non-profits, automotive and utilities, no industry escaped malicious actors and threat agents intent on accessing sensitive data.

RouteOne recognizes the pressures on your dealership to stay ahead of emerging threats, which is why we have created a variety of products and services to help protect your customers’ personal information. We offer an array of tools you can customize to fit the needs of your dealership. Take a look at a partial list below:

IP Blocking
IP Blocking is a simple and effective tool that can increase security at your dealership. Invoking IP Blocking can help prevent unauthorized access to sensitive customer data by allowing only dealership users from a dealership-approved IP address to enter your RouteOne system.  

Activity Alerts
Our Activity Alert tool allows you to create settings to notify your dealership of potentially suspicious user activity within the RouteOne platform. Receive reports designed to inform you when certain data is being re-used more than once on different credit applications or booked contracts. This information may include applicant name, SSN, phone number, employer information, vehicle, and more. 

User Permissions
This tool allows you to assign employee access permissions to suit your business processes, govern employee access to personal and confidential customer data, and manage data-sharing permissions with your finance sources.  You are in control; no one gets access to customer data unless you provide it.

Active Dealer User Report
The Active Dealer User Report aids your dealership in managing security by providing detailed information on RouteOne users and their RouteOne activity history within your dealership. As employees leave your dealership, this tool helps ensure that only current, valid employees have access to the RouteOne system. You can generate on-demand user reports to help track and manage your dealership’s compliance efforts.

Data Masking
Data Masking keeps unauthorized individuals from seeing sensitive data by masking SSNs, tax IDs, and driver’s license numbers when entering a credit app or running a credit bureau.
