Google Mini™ Integrated Solution Now Offers Secure Search for Businesses of All Sizes
Mountain View, Calif. – January 30, 2007 – Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) – Google today announced that the Google Mini i now offers sophisticated search features for finding and sharing information within small businesses and departmental groups, including document and user-level security, as well as access to any business content through Google Onebox for Enterprise ii.
"When the Google Mini was introduced two years ago, it set a new standard for sophisticated search features in a small, simple and affordable appliance," said Dave Girouard, vice president and general manager, Google Enterprise. "As search becomes more critical to businesses of all sizes, we continue to add even more sophisticated search features that, until now, had only been available to large businesses."
Starting at just $1995, the new Google Mini introduces:
- Secure Search
Specially enhanced to support the information-sharing needs inside of small businesses and departmental workgroups, the Google Mini offers document and user-level security across all business content. Google’s access control capabilities integrate with existing security systems, ensuring that employees can access only information they are authorized to view.
- Google OneBox for Enterprise
Introduced last year as part of the Google Search Appliance™ iii, the Google OneBox for Enterprise feature lets businesses provide secure access to any information – such as contact and calendar info, HR benefits, sales leads, or purchase order status – through the convenience of a Google™ search box.
Google OneBox for Enterprise is a feature developed in partnership with some of the world’s leading enterprise application vendors. With Google OneBox for Enterprise, employees can search across a greater variety of corporate information stored in such business systems as Business Objects, Cognos, Cisco, Employease, Microsoft Exchange, Netsuite, Oracle, Salesforce.com, SAP, SAS, and others. Organizations can also create OneBox modules to access applications built in-house.
- Site Search Improvements
Site administrators can now link the Google Mini search results page with Google Analytics™ iv to provide more detailed information about how people use search on their site in order to improve the overall site experience.
