For many years individuals have asked why we do not change our name. We’ve been told that if we ‘d just alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has an essential meaning to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for huging and unsafe, controling its environment.
Second, it was the name offered 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 male that has configured every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his thoughts on what he was developing and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history stems 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 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 method to pay tribute to that history and advise us of where and how this company was developed.
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 confess 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 complete market supremacy that can be achieved through a ruthless dedication to our people, product and market. Our ability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We may be smaller sized but those that have actually employed the help of Sucuri understand what the name means – Comfort and quality service.
