Gartner: Turn off file sharing in Google Desktop


Tech research firm Gartner is recommending that enterprises turn off the file sharing feature in Google's desktop software. In a research posting on its site, Gartner said businesses allowing employees to use Google Desktop 3 Beta, which was released 9 February, should start using the enterprise version of the software immediately. In addition, it said businesses should disable the Search Across Computers feature.

The feature enables people to share files in their computers. Google does this by storing index copies of the files on its server for up to 30 days. Gartner: Turn off file sharing in Google Desktop - Security - www.itnews.com.au
