Redwood Shores, California – (The Hosting News) – March 3, 2006 – Oracle has
launched Secure Enterprise Search 10g, a comprehensive, stand alone
search engine enabling customers to make critical business information more easily available.
The new product is scheduled to be generally available by May 31, 2006.
While enforcing corporate security policies, Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g uses a range of enterprise data sources including databases, file systems,
enterprise content management systems, portals, email systems and enterprise
applications tuned for the needs of the enterprise with search algorithms that can utilize existing business metadata to improve the relevance of search results.
Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g features a simple web interface allowing for efficient administration and management and users can access the search engine through web-based user interfaces and perform traditional keyword searches that provide results in a format similar to conventional searches. This will help minimize training and support costs and delivers direct integration with multiple user authentication systems, a hardened repository for storing the search index, a secure programming interface used to customize the search capabilities and high-quality search results.
According to the company, Oracle Vice President of Technology Marketing, Robert Shimp, ”Compliance regulations mandate that organizations maintain tight controls regarding who can access specific information. Thus, it is increasingly important to provide search technology that delivers results customized to the user’s role within the organization. Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g addresses this need.”
Sue Feldman, Research Vice President, IDC commented, ”Enterprises have unique search requirements that differ from those of consumer search. Secure access to multiple repositories, file formats, data and content is a necessary component. So, too, are ease-of-use, single point of access and integration with other major enterprise applications. As enterprise search becomes more mission-critical to information intensive organizations, they will want it to come with the same scalability, reliability and global support that they now expect from the rest of their IT infrastructure.”
Michael F. Johnson, Vice president and Chief Information Officer, AT Kearney, Inc. added, ”Oracle Secure Enterprise Search is being used in AT Kearney to provide a comprehensive, secure search over all the intellectual capital locked away in our applications and sources. Having tried several products and different approaches to delivering a single search covering our databases, files and mail, we found Oracle’s product provides the clearest fit to our requirements. We are also happy to see very good search quality, with our users being able to find what they want fast. AT Kearney has been a beta tester since April 2005 and plans to go live with Oracle Secure Enterprise Search.”
Ryugo S. Hayano, Professor, Department of Physics, University of Tokyo commented, ”We used Oracle Secure Enterprise Search for our portal site under development at the University of Tokyo. Oracle Secure Enterprise Search is an ideal product for use as a search engine built into our portal. It can securely conduct interdisciplinary full-text searches of all documents for various types of content within the University.”
Thomas Fuerle, Director of Web Operations of Austrian National Bank stated ”We have been testing Oracle’s search product for a number of months, and are very satisfied to see Oracle Secure Enterprise Search enter the market. We find that the search quality is very compelling and our users can at last find all the information they want from a single search.”
