Verity, Inc., has announced that the newest version of Verity Ultraseek enterprise search software, release 5.0.4J, is now available in the Japanese market. Verity Ultraseek 5.0.4J is designed to enable users to find and identify relevant content with greater ease and success. The product also provides system administrators with intuitive and streamlined server management while offering greater scalability than previous versions. Marketed as Inktomi Enterprise Search (IES) before the software was acquired by Verity and rebranded Verity Ultraseek, the technology includes a number of enhancements. Improved Relevance and Query Features--Verity Ultraseek 5.0.4J offers improved relevance for multiple word queries. In addition, in cases where queries return no results, the software now suggests less restrictive alternate queries to better ensure searching success. Quick Summaries--Search results contain document descriptions that are dynamically created from relevant passages in the document text with the user's query term highlighted. Users are able to more quickly identify the information they want since the query term is displayed in the context of the document. Administration User Interface (UI) Enhancements--This version of Ultraseek features a new streamlined Japanese UI that allows for more intuitive administration and management of the software. Enhanced Security--Enhanced security is also offered, such as more password options and the ability to block IP addresses for multiple failed login attempts. Digital Garage, Inc. will serve as a premier distributor of Verity Ultraseek software in Japan. Digital Garage first introduced the Ultraseek product to the Japanese market in 1997.
