Google releases Desktop Search for Enterprise
Google has released an enterprise-oriented version of its desktop search tool. Unlike the consumer version of Google Desktop Search, the enterprise version will not transmit any search information to Google.
Addressing security concerns was also a major component of the enterprise version, Glotzbach said. Encryption has been added to protect information as it is moved between network and desktop, and the tool has been upgraded to enable multiple users on a singe workstation. Google also added administrative controls to enable rules and restrictions to be built in that fit a customer's specific needs.
Google Desktop Search for Enterprise also adds support for Lotus Notes email, and corporate intranet searches. Like most Google applications, Google Desktop Search for Enterprise is available as a free download
