Using SharePoint As An Intranet

One of the great things about SharePoint is the fact that it can be used as both a self-contained intranet or a web-based solution to storage and communication for companies. When used as an intranet, SharePoint can provide safe and effective solutions for companies of any size to allow users to store, share and communicate about data throughout the organization.

What Is An Intranet?

An intranet is any grouping of computers within a particular system that allows users to share data. An intranet can be hardwired throughout the building or even hooked up wirelessly across various sites. However, the defining factor that separates an intranet from other types of systems is that information is not available outside of the company’s network. Users can only access this information by logging in via an approved portal. This allows companies to keep information away from the public and protect data that may be sensitive or valuable.
