For many years people have actually asked why we don’t change our name. We have actually been told that if we ‘d just alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. But Sucuri has a crucial meaning to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for being big and harmful, dominating its habitat.
Second, it was the name given to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we became really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has actually set every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas 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 men. His dad is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, focusing on 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 superiority throughout earlier conflicts. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and remind us of where and how this company was built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known internationally as one of the leading site security companies worldwide. 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, believe in complete market supremacy that can be attained through a ruthless commitment to our people, item and industry. Our capability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We might be smaller sized but those that have actually used the help of Sucuri comprehend exactly what the name implies – Peace of mind and quality service.
