For years people have asked why we don’t change our name. We’ve been told that if we ‘d just change our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has an essential significance to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for being big and harmful, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name provided to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we came to be in fact called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has actually programmed every line of code in our technology, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was developing and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history originates from a long line of Brazilian military men. His father is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, concentrating on tank/ weapons warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream could see no other more fitting name than Sucuri. He went on to discuss the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended on its supremacy throughout earlier disputes. This name is as method to commemorate 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 internationally as one of the leading site security companies 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 supremacy that can be achieved through a ruthless commitment to our people, product and market. Our capability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We may be smaller however those that have used the help of Sucuri understand what the name suggests – Peace of mind and quality service.
