Intranet is an internal and private enterprise network that allows employees to share and receive internal information about the business.
It is based on TCP/IP protocols and it is protected by a firewall to prevent unauthorised access to the network.
Intranets started to be first used in the early 1990s. The technology became widely adopted once in 1996, Microsoft launched a free web server.
