For many years people have actually asked why we don’t change our name. We’ve been told that if we ‘d only alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However 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 track record for being big and dangerous, dominating its environment.
Second, it was the name provided to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we happened actually called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the male that has actually 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 exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history stems from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His dad is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, specializing in tank/ artillery 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 on its superiority during earlier disputes. This name is as way to commemorate 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 worldwide as one of the leading site security companies on the planet. 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 accomplished through a relentless dedication to our people, product and industry. Our ability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is 2nd to none. We may be smaller sized but those that have actually used the help of Sucuri understand exactly what the name indicates – Assurance and quality service.
