Does Google Mini create any security issues?
The Google Mini is a secured appliance with a strict internal firewall locked down against external attacks. Only a small number of necessary ports are open on the Mini and it is thoroughly tested for potential security vulnerabilities by our engineering team. Any vulnerabilities are quickly addressed and patched. From a network security standpoint the Google Mini is a very secure. The Google Mini integrates easily with your organization's security infrastructure. If the Mini is going to be indexing sensitive internal documents as well as public Internet documents, the internal documents can be placed in a collection that is not publicly searchable. With internal documents, the Google Mini provides a link to the document, so only users who have rights to view it normally will be able to access it. The Google Mini also has the flexibility needed to conform to your organization's security policies.
