An intranet is a private computer network accessible only by employees to securely share any part of an organization's information or operational systems within that organization. The term is used in contrast to internet, a network between organizations, and instead refers to a network within an organization.
Intranets run on the standard Internet protocols and technologies (TCP/IP, HTTP, and HTML) that are used for the World Wide Web.This allows companies to use the same types of servers and browsers that they are currently using to access the WWW for internal applications and distributed information over their existing LAN. Because intranets are essentially just internal, non-public web sites,most employees are already familiar with the web's interface and there is little or no learning curve.
They can be used to distribute company news, update personnel records, and connect workers who operate from remote locations.
Secure intranets are the fastest-growing segment of the Internet because they are much less expensive to build and manage than private networks.
