For many years people have 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, and that it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has an important significance 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, dominating its habitat.
Second, it was the name given to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we happened really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the man that has actually programmed every line of code in our innovation, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was constructing and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history originates from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His daddy 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 disputes. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and advise us of where and how this business was built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known internationally as one of the leading website 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 dominance that can be achieved through a ruthless commitment to our individuals, product and industry. Our capability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We may be smaller sized but those that have used the aid of Sucuri comprehend what the name suggests – Peace of mind and quality service.
