Enterprise Search

Enterprise Search

The people in your organisation are hard at work making things happen. When they need publicly available information to get the job done, they know how to search on the Internet to find it. But when they need information only available within your business, they need enterprise search.

You want a search solution that allows you to deliver the simple, easy-to-use experience your users expect, while at the same time meeting the security and manageability requirements your IT environment demands.
