For many years people have actually asked why we do not alter our name. We’ve been told 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 essential meaning to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found 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 became actually called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has configured every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his thoughts 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 dad 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 discuss the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended upon its superiority during earlier disputes. This name is as method to commemorate that history and remind us of where and how this business was developed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now understood globally as one of the leading website security business worldwide. 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 total market supremacy that can be accomplished through a relentless commitment to our people, product and industry. Our capability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware problems – is 2nd to none. We may be smaller but those that have used the help of Sucuri comprehend what the name indicates – Assurance and quality service.
