There are distinct advantages and disadvantages to choosing Intranet Internet - the same is true of Extranet services. Intranet services are defined as secure systems where members of an organization can share information and connect with one another. Extranet services are defined as information sharing services that are connected available to certain people outside of the Internet.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Intranet

• Intranet systems require a great deal of security, in order to protect the system from unauthorized access. This means IT professionals who set up and maintain Intranet systems must install effective firewalls, anti-malware, and anti-spyware programs, as well as protecting against the usual barrage of viruses that are transmitted daily via shared information systems. The advantage of Intranet is its ability to provide services to a defined group of people, who can provide the right passwords and enter the system.

Advantages and Disadvantages Of Extranet

• A simple authentication process is all that's required to give customers, vendors, or other parties easy, quick access to an Extranet system that allows them to view relevant information about a company or project. However, security is also needed to maintain a secure Extranet. While security may not need to be a tight as it must be for Intranet, it is still a main disadvantage of maintaining the integrity of the system.

To learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of Extranet and Intranet systems, consider hiring a consultant, or taking a course related to this subject matter. Anyone who is considering the implementation of one of these services will benefit from getting more nitty-gritty details about the pros and cons of these information sharing platforms. There may also be online tutorials that take students through the rudiments of each type of system, and explain some of the pitfalls and good points related to each type of system.
