For years people have actually asked why we don’t change our name. We’ve been informed that if we ‘d just alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. However Sucuri has an important significance to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a reputation for being big and unsafe, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name offered to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we happened actually called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has programmed every line of code in our innovation, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his ideas on exactly what he was developing and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history stems from a long line of Brazilian military men. His father 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 discuss the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended on its supremacy throughout earlier conflicts. This name is as way to commemorate that history and remind 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 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, think in complete market dominance that can be attained through an unrelenting dedication to our individuals, product and industry. Our ability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We may be smaller but those that have used the help of Sucuri understand exactly what the name implies – Peace of mind and quality service.
