Oracle has unveiled a new enterprise search platform for corporate networks.
Oracle's Secure Enterprise Search program is designed to help firms scour databases, e-mail systems and other business applications to enable users to quickly glean information for their jobs.
Oracle’s move is in direct competition with Microsoft, Yahoo and Google, which have all recently launched new enterprise search solutions.
Oracle chief executive officer Larry Ellison launched the solution in Japan, and described Secure Enterprise Search as one of Oracle’s “biggest products in years”.
Security features in the product will ensure that users only have access to data that they are authorised to view, said Oracle.
The search tool will be available by the end of May, Oracle said, although no pricing for the solution has so far been disclosed.
