Intranet

An intranet works on the same principles as the internet but as a closed network only available to employees or members of a limited group. Many corporations operate an intranet because they can tailor the system for their unique needs. Since an intranet has limited users and a firewall, it is often more secure than the internet.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Intranet

Organizations use intranets for purposes including safely sharing information, storing files, creating a personalized space for employees, supporting collaboration between teams, and improving everyday tasks.
