Basis Technology Brings Multilingual Text Analytics to SearchBlox Customers

Secure, on-premise enterprise search solution integrates Rosette entity extraction in 18 languages

CAMBRIDGE, MA—July 12, 2016—Basis Technology, the leader in multilingual text analytics, today announced a partnership with SearchBlox, a leading provider of enterprise search solutions based on Apache Lucene, to provide high quality faceted search in 18 languages, including those critical to government intelligence agencies—Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Pashto, Persian, Russian, and Urdu.

SearchBlox customers can download the Rosette® SDK and connect it to their SearchBlox installation in minutes.

SearchBlox continually aggregates and indexes data in real-time for search and analysis, as data is added via over 60 data connectors, whether from social media, email, cloud storage, Salesforce, or other sources. Fine-grained controls let administrators select the type of analysis to apply field-by-field.

“Faceted search has become a standard interface for search users, but the quality of the facets is always a challenge, especially when languages other than English are introduced,” Gregor Stewart, VP of Product Management, said. “Our integration into SearchBlox provides its customers a better search experience across a broad set of languages.”

“We have been seeing a lot of demand from the government sector for a secure, on-premise search solution,” said Timo Selvaraj, Co-Founder and VP of Product Management at SearchBlox. “Combined with the Rosette SDK, SearchBlox is a cost-efficient and quickly deployed multilingual search and analysis solution. What used to take weeks and months of developer time now takes minutes to get running.”
