For many years people have actually asked why we do not alter 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 important significance to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a track record for huging and unsafe, controling its environment.
Second, it was the name given to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we came to be really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has actually configured every line of code in our technology, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on exactly 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 could 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 on its superiority throughout earlier conflicts. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and advise us of where and how this company was constructed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known globally as one of the leading website security companies in the world. We’ll confess 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 relentless dedication to our people, product and market. Our ability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We might be smaller but those that have actually used the assistance of Sucuri understand what the name implies – Assurance and quality service.
