For several years people have asked why we don’t change our name. We have actually been told that if we ‘d only change 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 found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a reputation for being big and harmful, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name provided 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 programmed every line of code in our technology, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was developing and how lost he was on exactly 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/ artillery warfare. After hearing Daniel’s technological dream might 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 supremacy during earlier conflicts. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and remind us of where and how this business was developed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now understood globally as one of the leading site security companies worldwide. 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, think in complete market dominance that can be achieved through a relentless dedication to our individuals, product and industry. Our ability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We might be smaller sized but those that have utilized the help of Sucuri comprehend what the name means – Comfort and quality service.
