Co-workers Sharing reading information on Intranet 

Everyone is familiar to everyone who has been using computers  or smartphone for any length of time, be that a Google search, brand website or a social site like Facebook. It is a place where anyone can access?

But what is an intranet? An intranet site is a website which is exclusively for member of a business or organisation protected by security from the outside world, where employee or members can share content, news, policies, documents information safe in the knowledge it can only be seen by other validated coworkers or participants. 

Learn more below, let's discuss the differences between the internet and an intranet.

What is the Internet?

The internet is a global network of computers where people are able to communicate, share information and access the World Wide Web.

What is an Intranet?

On the other hand, an intranet is a private or closed network—which means only authorized users can have access to it. It is like the restricted version of the internet where only employees, partners, shareholders, or investors have access to it. Organizations use an intranet to store, share, and organize relevant information within the organization.  

Some examples of an intranet platform are Steegle, Happeo, and LumApps. For a more detailed review see: Top Intranet Packages for 2022.
