X1 Search Virtual Edition empowers business workers and enables productivity in virtual desktop environments. Effective productivity search leverages the human brain to help people find the critical emails and office documents necessary to help them do their jobs. X1 Search Virtual Edition is specifically architected to retrieve results in the way a business professional remembers information, and consume computing resources in a way that allows IT to recognize the benefits of virtual desktop deployments. When it comes to virtual desktop environments, a good search solution must decouple the search interface from the indexing service, maximizing virtual desktop computing resources and maintaining virtual desktop infrastructure cost savings. X1’s resource efficient interface simplifies search, retrieving results as fast as you type, anywhere in the email, file and SharePoint contents or metadata, empowering business workers to tactically sort through and act upon their information.

X1 can go beyond desktop search to offer enterprise search of other repositories with the X1 Rapid Discovery product. X1 Rapid Discovery is a proven eDiscovery and enterprise search solution that uniquely deploys within virtual environments to enable corporations, law firms and consultants to quickly identify, search, and collect distributed data wherever it resides in the cloud or within the enterprise.

X1 Search is the only solution flexible enough for a globalized workforce. Whether working on your office desktop, or logging onto a virtual desktop from a remote location, X1 Search takes the effort out of finding critical documents regardless of where you or your data reside.

Product Review

X1 Search Virtual Edition

“One of the things that I like about X1 is that it could work as an enterprise file sync and share product. You have access to all of your files, your inbox, and your attachments, and they're all mobile-enabled and delivered with policy around them.”
