For many years individuals have actually asked why we don’t alter our name. We have actually been told that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, and that it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has a crucial meaning to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for being big and dangerous, 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 happened actually called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has actually programmed every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his thoughts on exactly what he was developing and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history stems from a long line of Brazilian military guys. His daddy 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 upon its supremacy during earlier disputes. This name is as way to pay tribute to that history and advise us of where and how this business was constructed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now known worldwide as one of the leading website security companies 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 attained through an unrelenting commitment to our people, item and market. Our ability to destroy attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We might be smaller however those that have employed the assistance of Sucuri understand what the name implies – Comfort and quality service.
