For many years people have asked why we do not change our name. We’ve been informed that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that 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 track record for being big and unsafe, 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 came to be really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has set every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his thoughts on what he was building and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history comes from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His father 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 discuss the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended on its supremacy during earlier conflicts. This name is as method to pay tribute to that history and remind 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 site security companies 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 total market supremacy that can be accomplished through a relentless dedication to our people, item and industry. Our ability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware problems – is second to none. We may be smaller sized but those that have actually utilized the help of Sucuri comprehend what the name indicates – Comfort and quality service.
