What's the best way to present main navigation for a site where you login and have access to two products, that have some different navigation.

3 navigations: 1) External page, about us, products etc.. -- Login In ---- 2) Product 1 navigation... clients, service, product-1 specific link 1, P1-SL 2 3) Product 2 navigation... clients, service, product-2 specific link 1, P2-SL 2

Some users may only have access to product 1, some only product 2, some both 1 & 2.

Separate sub-dashboards or views? two rows? I think blending all the navigation for product 1 and 2 (and eventually 3,4) will get too long.
Solution should be mobile/responsive friendly.

The Google Chrome Developers site is one great example of this. This site is for developers who want to create apps or extensions for devices using Google Chrome. It has a top navigation with all the different major APIs available (Chrome Apps, Chrome Extensions, etc.), and a left sided nav that acts as the main nav for the currently selected product.
