They're the same. "Mountain" cassettes work fine with brifters. If you exceed 30 teeth on the largest sprocket though you will need to change your "road" rear derailer to a "mountain" rear derailer which will work fine with brifters. OTOH, front derailers and shifters a for road and mountain require a different amount of cable pull and are not interchangeable.
