For several years individuals have actually asked why we do not alter our name. We have actually been informed that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has a crucial meaning 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 dangerous, controling its environment.
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 actually programmed every line of code in our innovation, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his thoughts on what he was constructing and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history comes from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His dad 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 superiority throughout earlier conflicts. This name is as way 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 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 supremacy that can be achieved through an unrelenting dedication to our people, product and industry. Our ability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware problems – is 2nd to none. We might be smaller but those that have actually utilized the help of Sucuri understand exactly what the name indicates – Assurance and quality service.
