FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- RouteOne has formed a partnership with Colorado-based Triple Protection Auto Care (Tri-PAC) to provide automotive dealers with an extensive Red Flags compliance and information security program.

Tri-PAC's services complement RouteOne's Identify Verification and Authentication tool (IDV), powered by TransUnion, now available to dealers. Tri-PAC provides dealers with the tools and expertise to create and administer an ongoing customized Red Flags compliance program, complete with incident response services and training for dealership employees.

Additionally, through its optional information defense program, Tri-PAC offers dealers a fully managed information security, incident response and recovery program backed by experts in identity theft, law enforcement, forensics, corporate insurance plans and crisis communications.

Tri-PAC also provides dealers the ability to take advantage of its services while turning their dealership into a profit center by offering their IdentiTheft recovery services to consumers in the F&I office. With several programs available, dealers can select the Tri-PAC plan that best suits their desired breadth of coverage and risk tolerance.

The Tri-PAC solution set integrates RouteOne's industry-leading ID Verification and Authentication feature to provide a comprehensive set of products for protecting both the dealership and its customers.

"RouteOne's IDV solution, coupled with our alliance with Tri-PAC, puts us at a distinct competitive advantage in that we can offer dealers a robust and customizable Red Flag program to best meet their needs," said Mike Jurecki, RouteOne CEO. "With RouteOne's IDV tool and Tri-PAC's Red Flag Ready web-based compliance tool, dealers can be confident in developing an identity theft prevention program that meets the FTC's Red Flag requirements."

"There should be a great feeling of comfort for dealers across the country to know that their relationship with RouteOne provides them with the best solutions for today's challenging market," says Keith Cooper, Tri-PAC President/COO. "RouteOne truly understands that providing a less than complete Red Flag solution would not fit the commitment to their finance source and

dealer customers. Tri-PAC is proud to combine our Red Flag Ready and Information Defense solutions with RouteOne's IDV tool to deliver what we feel is the industry's most comprehensive Red Flag and information security package."
