For many years individuals have asked why we do not change our name. We have actually been told that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. But Sucuri has an important meaning to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a reputation for huging 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 happened in fact called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the man that has actually configured every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was building 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 father 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 explain the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended upon its superiority during earlier conflicts. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and remind us of where and how this company was developed.
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, think in complete market supremacy that can be achieved through a relentless commitment to our individuals, product and market. Our capability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware problems – is second to none. We may be smaller sized however those that have used the aid of Sucuri understand what the name indicates – Peace of mind and quality service.
