For several years individuals have actually asked why we don’t alter our name. We have actually 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 an important significance to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a reputation for huging and dangerous, dominating its habitat.
Second, it was the name offered to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we became actually called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the man that has actually configured every line of code in our innovation, was having a night alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was constructing and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history stems from a long line of Brazilian military men. His dad is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, specializing in tank/ weapons warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream could see no other more fitting name than Sucuri. He went on to explain 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 developed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known internationally as one of the leading website security business worldwide. We’ll admit that it brings a smile to our face when the cynics stumble over the pronunciation of the name.
Sucuri, like the Amazonian anaconda and the tank destroyer, believe in complete market dominance that can be achieved through a relentless dedication to our people, product and industry. Our ability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is 2nd to none. We might be smaller however those that have used the assistance of Sucuri understand exactly what the name suggests – Peace of mind and quality service.
