Any of the national mirrors have the security archive mirrored in the
debian-security/ directory
You can use them. They should contain the same thing as security.debian.org as they are both just copies of ftp-master's repositories. However Debian does not offical support the use of any security repositories other than security.debian.org (Although ftp-master would theoretically be even better, that server is already taxed enough.)

The offical security team faq says:

Q: Why are there no official mirrors for security.debian.org?
A: The purpose of security.debian.org is to make security updates available as quickly and easily as possible.

Encouraging the use of unofficial mirrors would add extra complexity that is usually not needed and that can cause frustration if these mirrors are not kept up to date. Official mirrors, however, are planned to be implemented in the future.
