21st Century Technologies Limited has obtained a Tier IV certification from Uptime Institute, the first time for any telecommunications company in Africa.
With this certification, 21st Century will construct a digital economy data centre in Nigeria.
In 2018, 21st Century Technologies, which is led by Wale Ajisebutu (pictured), achieved the multi-tier cloud security standard.
At that time, the company described the standard as one that involves relevant cloud computing security practices and controls for public cloud users, public cloud service providers, auditors and certifiers.
