For several years individuals have actually asked why we do not change our name. We’ve been informed that if we ‘d just change our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. But Sucuri has an important significance to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a track record for huging and harmful, 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 actually called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has programmed every line of code in our technology, 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 household history stems from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His daddy is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, focusing 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 supremacy during earlier disputes. This name is as way to commemorate that history and remind us of where and how this business was constructed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known internationally as one of the leading website security companies in the world. 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, believe in complete market supremacy that can be achieved through a relentless commitment to our individuals, product and industry. Our capability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is 2nd to none. We may be smaller sized however those that have actually employed the assistance of Sucuri understand what the name implies – Peace of mind and quality service.
