About Simflofy Federation for Google Drive

While Google’s search capabilities are embedded in Drive and offer basic search functionality, they cannot adequately service the needs of the enterprise or the enterprise user. This leads to an interesting situation - while Google Drive is widely adopted and usable, it gets in its own way when it comes to findability and content reuse.

Locating vital information for the knowledge worker these days can seem next to impossible when using numerous, disconnected repositories including Google Drive. Simflofy’s Secure Search can index not only Google Drive but also multiple legacy systems, making the findability experience simpler, faster, and secure for the knowledge worker. For the enterprise, this translates into productivity gains and cost-effective use of IT infrastructure.
