Today’s dealerships contain a thriving ecosystem of technological systems designed to heighten the overall customer experience and optimize sales.
These systems typically contain different but collaborative software packages. As new vulnerabilities are identified or reported to the software vendor, updates or patches are released to mitigate issues.
