According to the press release, new features include:
– 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 OneBox for Enterprise
Introduced last year as part of the Google Search Appliance, 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.
– Site Search Improvements
Site administrators can now link the Google Mini search results page with Google Analytics to provide more detailed information about how people use search on their site in order to improve the overall site experience. The new Google Mini also automatically generates sitemaps.
Makes me wish I had an intranet and enough employees to warrant the $2k price tag.
