For many years individuals have actually asked why we do not change 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 an important meaning to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a track record for being big and harmful, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name offered to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we happened in fact called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has actually programmed every line of code in our technology, was having an evening 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 comes from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His daddy 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 explain 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 advise us of where and how this company was built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now understood globally as one of the leading site security companies in the world. 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, think in complete market supremacy that can be attained through a relentless commitment to our people, product and industry. Our ability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We may be smaller sized but those that have actually used the help of Sucuri comprehend exactly what the name implies – Comfort and quality service.
