For several years individuals have asked why we don’t change our name. We’ve been informed that if we ‘d just alter our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has an important significance to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for huging and hazardous, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name given to a Brazilian tank destroyer in the 1980s, the EE-18 Sucuri tank destroyer.
How we came to be really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has configured every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandfather. Daniel shared his ideas on exactly what he was building and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history stems from a long line of Brazilian military males. His dad is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, focusing on 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 during earlier conflicts. This name is as method 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 internationally as one of the leading site security business worldwide. We’ll admit that it brings a smile to our face when the cynics stumble over the pronunciation of the name.
Sucuri, like the Amazonian anaconda and the tank destroyer, believe in complete market dominance that can be accomplished through a relentless dedication to our people, product and market. Our ability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We may be smaller but those that have actually used the assistance of Sucuri comprehend exactly what the name implies – Peace of mind and quality service.
