Secior was originally founded in 2011 by a number of entrepreneurs specialising in designing, building, managing data centres and providing high-quality cloud services. Under the name Datacenter Brabant, the company established its reputation as a data centre operator and cloud provider with 100% uptime. After the data centre was sold in 2018, a new strategic direction was chosen. After several years of research, Secior was relaunched with the current SME team, with in-depth knowledge of data centre infrastructures, OT/IT cybersecurity and auditing methods from the financial sector.
