For many years people have asked why we don’t change our name. We’ve been told that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has a crucial significance to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for being big and dangerous, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name given to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we happened really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has configured every line of code in our innovation, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was constructing and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history originates from a long line of Brazilian military men. His daddy is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, concentrating on tank/ artillery warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream might see no other more fitting name than Sucuri. He went on to describe the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended upon its supremacy during earlier conflicts. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and advise us of where and how this business was built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known globally as one of the leading site security business worldwide. We’ll admit that it brings a smile to our face when the naysayers stumble over the pronunciation of the name.
Sucuri, like the Amazonian anaconda and the tank destroyer, believe in total market dominance that can be achieved through a relentless dedication to our individuals, product and industry. Our capability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We may be smaller sized however those that have employed the help of Sucuri comprehend what the name means – Comfort and quality service.
