For many years people have actually asked why we don’t change our name. We have actually been informed that if we ‘d only alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. But Sucuri has a crucial significance to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a track record for huging and hazardous, dominating its environment.
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 really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy 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 developing and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history stems from a long line of Brazilian military males. 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 upon its superiority during earlier conflicts. This name is as way 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 business on the planet. We’ll confess 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 achieved through an unrelenting dedication to our individuals, product and industry. Our ability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We might be smaller but those that have actually employed the assistance of Sucuri understand exactly what the name indicates – Assurance and quality service.
