Google Desktop Search goes Corporate
Posted on 19-May-2005 08:22 | Tags Filed under: News



Google Inc. is introducing the Google Desktop Search for Enterprise. This free downloadable application enables companies to provide employees with the ability to search for information on their computers.

Based on Google's desktop search application for consumers, Google Desktop Search for Enterprise adds new enterprise-level security, configuration and deployment controls, as well as the ability to search the full text of IBM Lotus Notes messages.

The Google Desktop Search for Enterprise provides a simple deployment framework and a series of new features designed specifically to meet the needs of corporate environments.

The software allows users to search desktop files, the corporate intranet and global Internet all from one search box. It provides corporate email, files, web history, even instant messages, plus the ability to view web pages visited, even when not online.

IT departments will be able to control all configuration settings. For example, restrict the indexing of secure sites, specific file types, or particular domains. The software supports index encryption to protect the search index from unauthorized access

Google Desktop Search is a free download with an unlimited, enterprise-wide use licence.

In addition to Lotus Notes, Google Desktop Search can access the full text of a user's web page history and search AOL instant messages. Google works with popular email clients, popular file types (including text, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, MP3, image, audio, and video files) and web pages viewed using popular browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla and Netscape).

Google Desktop Search for Enterprise also offers full integration with the Google Search Appliance and Google Mini to deliver search results and convenient one-stop-searching from the desktop, intranet and Google.com.

The company also offers an optional premium support package, which includes access to information and assistance from Google experts, guaranteed response time on requests, and escalation for critical issues.
