For several years people have 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 ever be accepted. However Sucuri has an important meaning to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a track record for huging and hazardous, dominating its habitat.
Second, it was the name offered 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 guy that has configured every line of code in our technology, was having a night alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his thoughts on exactly what he was constructing 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, 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 superiority throughout earlier conflicts. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and advise us of where and how this company was constructed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known globally as one of the leading site security business on the planet. 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 complete market dominance that can be achieved through an unrelenting commitment to our people, product and industry. Our capability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We might be smaller sized but those that have actually used the aid of Sucuri understand what the name suggests – Assurance and quality service.
