For many years individuals have actually asked why we don’t change our name. We’ve been told that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. But Sucuri has an important meaning to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for huging 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 came to be in fact called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the man that has actually configured every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his thoughts on exactly what he was building and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history stems from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His dad is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, specializing in tank/ weapons warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream might 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 supremacy during earlier disputes. This name is as way to commemorate that history and advise us of where and how this company was developed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now understood internationally as one of the leading site security business on the planet. We’ll admit 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 total market supremacy that can be attained through an unrelenting dedication to our people, product and industry. Our capability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We may be smaller sized but those that have utilized the assistance of Sucuri understand exactly what the name implies – Assurance and quality service.
