For many years people have actually 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 be accepted. But 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 track record for being big and unsafe, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name provided 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 man that has configured every line of code in our innovation, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his ideas on exactly 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 father is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, specializing in tank/ artillery warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream could 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 on its superiority during earlier conflicts. This name is as method to pay tribute to that history and remind us of where and how this company was constructed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known internationally as one of the leading site security business 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 dominance that can be accomplished through a relentless commitment to our people, product and industry. Our capability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We may be smaller but those that have actually employed the help of Sucuri comprehend exactly what the name means – Assurance and quality service.
