Infoseek, HP Seal Partnership

Infoseek Corp. announced Tuesday it is parterning with Hewlett-Packard Co. in a deal that will make Infoseek's Ultraseek Content Classification Engine the featured classified engine of HP's Covision program.

The Ultraseek engine allows businesses to easily index and search content stored on intranets and the Internet. The product was introduced in November and works in conjunction with Ultraseek Server 3.0.

HP's Covision program brings together a variety of partners to integrate Internet applications and services with HP's computer technology. The program provides businesses with turnkey Internet and intranet solutions.

"Ultraseek Server delivers on our charter to offer HP customers the highest quality Internet applications available," said Greg Mihran, director of Internet business development for HP's personal systems group.

"Content is expanding rapidly on intranets and Web sites and our customers need the robust search and index system Ultraseek provides. With HP systems and service and Covision alliances with companies like Infoseek, we offer our customers high-quality, comprehensive Internet solutions for the enterprise," he said.

Ultraseek Server 3.0 added several enhancements, including the ability to index documents created using the Extensible Markup Language, or XML, support for Secure Sockets Layer encryption, the ability to manage indices and URLs on mirror sites and multiple language support.
