Google has recently released its newer version of Google Desktop. Google Desktop is a free, downloadable program that includes an option to let users search across multiple computers for files. This program has much more speed on the search utility compared to the conventional window based searches for files and folder, which is painstakingly slow. In order to provide a fast search result, the application automatically stores copies of files, for up to a month, on Google servers. From there, copies of your files are transferred to the user's other computers for archiving. The data is encrypted to have maximum security during transmission and while stored on Google servers.
The newer beta version has security vulnerability and risk to enterprises, as per Gartner, which is research company. This vulnerability arises from the way shared information is pooled by Google.
Gartner said in a report on Thursday that the "mere transport (of data) outside the enterprise will represent an unacceptable security risk to a number of enterprises," as intellectual property could be transported out of the business.
