Intranet - Definition

An Intranet is actually a private network within an organization that uses Internet technologies and protocols, but is available only to certain people, such as employees of a company. An Intranet can be understood as a private version of the Internet that is confined to an organization. Intranets help users to locate and view information faster and use applications relevant to their roles and responsibilities. By using a web browser interface, such as Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, Internet users can access data held in any database the organization wants to make available, anytime and from anywhere within the company workstations. An organization's intranet is usually securely protected from external access by a firewall.
