as Innovations to secure Cyberspace  

Facing the challenges of the next millennium

The continual improvement in productivity in silicon integrated circuits, and the related lower cost of computing and communications bandwidth, has led the world to the “Connectivity Era” ─ the networked, heterogeneous  micro-computing part of which is termed as the "Internet of Things".

Today the digital economy consumes roughly 10% of the world's electricity. Nonetheless, this share will only increase as we move deeper into the Connectivity Era, when the number of connected devices explodes, along with the equipment needed to transport, store and process the data they generate.

Clearly, we face serious consequences for both the economy and the environment if we fail to dramatically reduce the energy consumption of our digital economy. Moreover, the nature of this era demands an even greater leap forward in the realm of cyber security.

It is the mission and vision of Avanet Systems to significantly and positively impact the paradigm-level transformation that is leading toward an energy efficient, secure and connected world.

"Despite all concerted efforts to the contrary, today there are nearly four billion existing and indisputably vulnerable computers, in addition to over one billion smart devices shipped every year to quench the seemingly insatiable thirst for mobile devices, all with ineffectual protection against cyber-attacks.

Combine this with the attributes of connectivity era especially the explosive trend toward dependency on the cloud, and one begins to grasp the enormity of cybersecurity challenge."
