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 Age” ─ the connectivity side of which is termed as the "Internet of Things".
The digital economy consumes 10% of the world's electricity today — and that share will only increase with the advent of the Connectivity Age, a fact that portends serious consequences for both the economy and the environment. Clearly, dramatically reducing power consumption of the "Digital Things" must become a paramount objective of this era, subsequently forcing a significant improvement in computing elasticity. Moreover, the nature of this connectivity era demands an even greater leap forward in the realm of cybersecurity.
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.

"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."
