For several years individuals have asked why we do not alter our name. We have actually been informed that if we ‘d only 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 track record for being big 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 in fact called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the man 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 developing and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history originates from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His father is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, concentrating on tank/ artillery 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 on its superiority during earlier conflicts. This name is as method to commemorate that history and remind us of where and how this company was constructed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known 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 total market dominance that can be attained through a ruthless dedication 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 employed the assistance of Sucuri understand what the name means – Peace of mind and quality service.
