Identity management company OneLogin announced the debut of Cloud Search, which enables secure, real-time search across public cloud apps such as Box, Google Apps, Salesforce, Yammer and Zendesk, as well as in-house web apps.
Enterprise search products have done a solid job of ingesting content from on-premise data repositories, while public search engines are well suited for searching the internet in general. However, searching across siloed cloud applications in real-time represents a different kind of challenge to companies, that the solution intends to address.
For example, Rich Rothschild, vice president of enterprise information services at Pandora Internet Radio says, “Downloading data from dozens of cloud applications into a search appliance every couple of weeks would have been a cumbersome operation. Plus, the data isn’t indexed in real-time, and employees might be able to view information outside their domain.”
The search solution operates with a sub-second response time, and no indexing is required. The technology of single sign-on encourages employees to take immediate action on search insights. The solution is also tied to an enterprise’s existing security model so employees only have access to authorized applications and content.
