For years people have actually asked why we don’t change our name. We have actually been informed that if we ‘d only alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. But Sucuri has an important meaning to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a track record for being big and harmful, 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 man that has configured every line of code in our innovation, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was building and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household 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/ weapons warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream might 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 method to pay tribute to that history and remind us of where and how this company was developed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known globally as one of the leading website security companies in the world. We’ll admit 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 total market dominance that can be attained through a relentless commitment to our people, product and market. Our ability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We may be smaller sized however those that have employed the aid of Sucuri understand exactly what the name suggests – Assurance and quality service.
