Cloud Partner Navigator provides a central location for downloading and viewing usage reports. VMware stores the historical records so that partners do not need to maintain their older appliances.
As the usage and analytics features are embedded into Cloud Partner Navigator the Cloud Partner Navigator itself is SOC2 Type 1 and ISO 27001 compliant.
