An Extranet is the extension of an Intranet to multiple locations. An extranet is designed to be accessed only by users from a certain organization, but may be accessible from many different locations or even from anywhere in the world across the Internet.

Supporting technologies, such as virtual private networks, are often used to help ensure privacy and security on extranets.
