For many years people have 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, and that it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. However Sucuri has an important significance to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a track record for being big and dangerous, 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 man that has programmed every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on exactly 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 males. His daddy is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, focusing on 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 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 built.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now understood globally as one of the leading website security companies worldwide. 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 dedication to our individuals, product and industry. Our ability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is 2nd to none. We might be smaller but those that have used the help of Sucuri comprehend what the name suggests – Assurance and quality service.
