Customer Metadata Boundary

As part of the Data Localization Suite, the Customer Metadata Boundary (CMB) ensures that any traffic metadata which identifies a customer’s end user (that is, contains the customer’s Account ID) will stay in the EU (Europe Union) or in the US (the United States), depending on the region the customer selects. For example, if a customer selects the EU Customer Metadata Boundary, metadata will only be sent to our core data center located in the European Union.
