Intranet

An intranet is an access restricted network used internally in an organisation. Typically the term refers to the internal web site.

Other internet protocols are commonly used as well, especially ftp and email. There is often an attempt to use internet technologies to provide new interfaces with corporate 'legacy' data and information systems.
