This could be improved if we knew for sure what we were announcing!
The new host is a additional machine in the official security.debian.org
mirror network, which now gives better RTT for the whole asia region and
a better geo redundancy.  Maybe that helps for understanding why this
machine is so important.
Thanks, but the question is what it is that has changed, and what
SAKURA Internet, Inc did to help.  The original text seemed to say
there was some machine already hosting security.debian.org that they
helped to relocate to Japan:
there never was an official security mirror for the asia region. SAKURA
Internet provided the hardware and the hosting, so we now have resources
in the asia region go give the asia region better RTT for
security.debian.org. Up to now the asia region needed to get security
updates from security.debian.org from anywhere in the world, which was
either US or EU (two hosts per continent). Now they have one for their
own continent.


Would this be a better summary?:

The Debian Project is pleased to announce a new
security.debian.org mirror with hardware and hosting provided by
SAKURA Internet, Inc. The new host located in and serving content
from Japan strengthens and extends Debian's official security mirror
network, provides geographical redundancy, and faster download and
round trip times for users in that region. Prior to this deployment,
users in that region lacked an official mirror and pulled security
updates from US or EU mirrors.
