'Security’, ‘Surveillance’; you hear these words every day. Too often it’s either the consequence of a lack of security or questions on how to monitor when there’s nothing you can see. At Avnet, security touches everything we do.
- If you build equipment for the security market, we have the technologies and tools to put you on the leading edge.
- If you need to integrate security into your equipment to meet regulatory requirements or to assure your customers, our team has practical and proven experience to deliver an unbreakable solution.
- If building your product in a secure environment is essential for thwarting breaches when the equipment is in the field, Avnet’s certified centers and processes will exceed your expectations.
You need a partner that does more than talk about security, you need Avnet where the security of your application is our highest priority.
The building blocks for creating security and surveillance solutions
The pace of innovation around security is exciting. The Internet of Things (IoT) has had an incredible impact on security applications in terms of complexity and creating opportunity. Avnet understands this and takes each of the technologies that fit into security and surveillance and seamlessly puts them together for you.
Advancements in CMOS imaging and infrared sensors mean IP cameras can deliver sharper images in poor lighting conditions. Avnet builds on this by tying in advanced processors able to perform heavy computation on fast data feeds. We then work with companies who develop intellectual property (IP) for state-of-the-art analytics to quickly deliver actionable intelligence.
You’ll be able to reach the market quickly by using our reference designs as a starting point or foundation for your application. For example, we’ve developed a 360⁰ panoramic view security camera solution and an object recognition solution that works with Avnet’s Embedded Vision kits.
This solution approach sets us apart from everyone in the industry. We’ve been taking this approach for years. Avnet is widely recognized for developing integrated, security solutions ahead of the curve to keep you and your customers ahead of the bad guys. We follow the same discipline for all applications from detecting motion to watching a perimeter to keeping data from being tampered with or vulnerable to unauthorized access.
A secure environment to build your solution
Outsourcing any aspect of your production process can open the door to security issues. Avnet has the answer so you can rest easy. We own all of our primary distribution, value-add and integration centers and hold ISO certifications to ensure a secure, consistent experience.
We offer secure virtual private networks (VPN) in our integration centers so you can inject keys or protect your IP during the software imaging process. Our device programming centers offer secure key generation services. We also have hard drive erasure services that follow stringent government and industry standards. For example, Avnet uses a three-pass data wipe process to ensure no software or data can be accessed once a piece of hardware is no longer in service.
Having to deal with a security issue after the fact is never good. At Avnet, we’ve anticipated the potential risks and put services and processes in place to protect you. We stay on top of the latest trends and develop new security innovations to address potential issues before they materialize.
