For several years individuals have asked why we do not change our name. We’ve been informed that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. But Sucuri has a crucial significance to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for being big and harmful, controling 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 really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has actually set every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. 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 originates from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His dad is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, focusing on tank/ weapons 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 upon its supremacy throughout earlier disputes. This name is as way 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 site security business 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, think in total market dominance that can be achieved through a ruthless commitment to our people, product and market. Our capability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We might be smaller however those that have used the assistance of Sucuri comprehend exactly what the name means – Assurance and quality service.
