As its name suggests, The Bunker is all about security, specifically data security. It owns and operates data centres as well as building and managing IT systems for organisations that require their data to be well protected, such as financial companies. As a result its data centres are housed in former military bunkers and all staff are thoroughly vetted. Joint chairmen Peregrine Newton and Steven Joseph founded the Kent company in 2004, and in 2006 raised £1m from Foresight Venture Partners. Sales rose 54% a year from £1.5m in 2006 to £5.2m in 2009.
