By the use of internet technology, organizations are creating internal networks for use within an organization on an enterprise basis. Intranets use internet standards of connectivity and software developed for the WWW on the existing organizational network. As a result the networked applications can run on many different kinds of computers in use in the organization giving greater flexibility of hardware. Intranets are private to the organization and are protected from the public internet firewalls which are security systems with specialized software to prevent outsiders from gaining access to the private network.
