Custom Site Search for Password Protected Site

Hello experts!

I have a site, let's call it mysite.com, that requires people to use a username and password to access. Mysite.com provides these people access to restricted information, materials, etc. and prevents my competitors from viewing this information.

I would like to incorporate something like Google's Custom Search on Mysite.com to make it easier for my users to find stuff. So, I have two questions.

1) Can I set up a Google Custom Search for a password protected site?

2) If this is possible, will this content be viewable from Google? I do not want my competitors to view this information.

If there's a better solution, I'm open to suggestions.

Thank you!

Exactly HOW can you be sure that registered users on your site are NOT competitors???

looks like that google custom search is only for public crawl-able pages:

Hello paulsauve, I can't be sure that my current users are not competitors, but that's not the issue I'm addressing here. I don't want to make it easy for my competitors to view my site.

Thank you The_Big_Daddy and GaryC123 for the information! I'll be looking into the enterprise search. Are there other search tools available that act like a Google Search for an intranet? I've stumbled across http://www.alchemyapi.com/, but I don't if it's any good or not.
