For many years individuals have asked why we do not alter our name. We have actually been informed that if we ‘d just change our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. However Sucuri has a crucial meaning 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, dominating its environment.
Second, it was the name given 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 male that has actually programmed every line of code in our innovation, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his thoughts on what he was building and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history stems from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His dad is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, focusing on 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 on its supremacy throughout earlier conflicts. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and remind us of where and how this company was built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known worldwide 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 dominance that can be accomplished through a ruthless commitment to our individuals, product and industry. Our capability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware problems – is 2nd to none. We may be smaller however those that have used the help of Sucuri understand what the name means – Comfort and quality service.
