Intranet

Intranet is a computer network that is employed in an organization for private use. Intranet enables the sharing of data among the employees in a secure environment. The applications run using the internet protocols (TCP/IP).Other internet protocols like HTTP, SMTP and FTP also work well with the intranet. Intranet may or may not have the facility to access internet. If it is able to access the internet, then the gateway has to be protected by a firewall to prevent unauthorized access. Intranets are very efficient in the matter of communication within an organization. Expense and time needed to publish the information is lessened considerably. Other than these, most of the intranets provide cross platform compatibility.
