Google yesterday introduced a desktop search tool for businesses. The tool is based on the consumer version of the desktop search tool and allows users to quickly find information on the web, on their own HDD and as well as on corporate intranets.
The Desktop Search Tool for businesses is integrated with Google's Search Appliance and Mini, two applications to provide corporate intranets with search. It also supports Lotus Notes, a business e-mail system from IBM.
Google also said all indexed and stored data will be encrypted for security reasons.
Microsoft officially launched its desktop search tool a few days ago and also said it would soon offer a desktop search tool for enterprises.
