Extending desktop search
X1 Technologies has announced expanded platform support for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint through new content connectors, which allow companies to leverage their Microsoft systems through secure, unified search. With the X1 Enterprise Platform, users can search, preview and take action on critical Exchange, SharePoint and Office documents, through a single, secure enterprise desktop search interface. Users do not need to know where the data is stored in order to preview, print or take other action on the search results.
X1 has also introduced a free, secure desktop search solution for the enterprise. The X1 Enterprise Client gives business users comprehensive desktop search capabilities without putting enterprise assets at risk. Free of charge to their organizations, business users can increase productivity by searching desktop e-mail, calendars and documents quickly and easily, while IT managers can feel comfortable that network assets are secure.
The company says the free X1 Enterprise Client is the first desktop search product designed specifically for enterprise use. It adds that by disabling features that can put corporate data at risk and adversely affect exchange and network performance, it has delivered the first desktop search product that is safe for deployment on corporate networks.
X1 has also announced an industry resource center to help IT professionals evaluate and deploy enterprise desktop search solutions. The center offers a wide range of information and tools including white papers, articles, industry research and competitive offerings. The company will also offer a free enterprise desktop search evaluation kit with comprehensive tools for IT pilots and deployments. The evaluation kit will include deployment guides and best practices frameworks along with full support for free enterprisewide deployment.
