For years people have actually asked why we don’t change 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 a crucial significance to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a reputation for being big and unsafe, 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 in fact called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the man that has set every line of code in our innovation, was having an evening alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on exactly what he was building and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history stems from a long line of Brazilian military males. 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 upon its supremacy throughout earlier disputes. This name is as way to commemorate that history and remind us of where and how this company was built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known worldwide as one of the leading website security companies worldwide. We’ll confess 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, believe in complete market dominance that can be achieved through a ruthless dedication to our people, item and market. Our ability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is 2nd to none. We might be smaller however those that have actually used the assistance of Sucuri understand exactly what the name indicates – Peace of mind and quality service.
