For many years people have asked why we do not change our name. We’ve been told that if we ‘d just alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. However Sucuri has an essential meaning to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a reputation for being big and unsafe, 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 in fact called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has actually programmed every line of code in our innovation, was having an evening alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his thoughts on what he was developing and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history comes 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 upon its supremacy during earlier disputes. This name is as method to commemorate that history and remind us of where and how this business was built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now understood worldwide as one of the leading website security business in the world. 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, think in complete market dominance that can be achieved through an unrelenting commitment to our individuals, product and market. Our ability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is 2nd to none. We may be smaller sized however those that have used the help of Sucuri understand what the name indicates – Comfort and quality service.
