For many years individuals have actually asked why we do not change our name. We have actually been told that if we ‘d just change our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. But Sucuri has an important 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 dangerous, 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 became actually called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has set every line of code in our technology, was having a night 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 comes from a long line of Brazilian military men. His father is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, focusing on tank/ artillery warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream could see no other more fitting name than Sucuri. He went on to describe the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended on its supremacy during earlier conflicts. This name is as method to commemorate that history and advise 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 companies on the planet. 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 supremacy that can be attained through a relentless dedication to our individuals, product and market. Our ability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is 2nd to none. We may be smaller but those that have used the assistance of Sucuri understand exactly what the name suggests – Comfort and quality service.
