Can anyone give me a little review of these Wikis.
I am looking for a Wiki, that is to be used for a company internally. Either installed on a server or online - yet to be decided.
The important issues is the security. The pages should not be open to the public. I heard that MediaWiki cannot be configurated to control access of pages or the site in general. Can one also categorize security levels or something like that?
Because several people will be posting on the site, who have little knowledge of codes, it has also to be simple to use.

Get around that by hosting the site on your internal LAN and then nobody outside the company will have access. Another option would be to password protect the directories where the the wiki is installed.
DokuWiki has Access Level Controls so that you can limit access to content. [dokuwiki.org...] I'm not sure if that is easy to maintain for a large number of members though.

Or limit access by IP and only let people in if they're coming from the company IP.
Of course, there's security and there's security. It's not like any of those solutions would rise to the level of PCI compliance without serious effort (like if you have wireless LAN, you have to have someone assigned to review access records daily and you have archive access records for 1 year).
