For years individuals have asked why we don’t alter our name. We’ve been told that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never be accepted. However Sucuri has an essential meaning to us.
First, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a reputation for huging and hazardous, 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 really called Sucuri is a story within itself.
Daniel, the guy that has actually configured every line of code in our innovation, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his ideas on what he was constructing and how lost he was on what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s family history originates from a long line of Brazilian military males. His daddy is an active Four-Star General in the Brazilian Army, specializing in tank/ weapons 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 supremacy during earlier conflicts. 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 known internationally 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, think in complete market supremacy that can be achieved through a relentless dedication to our people, product and market. Our capability to ruin attacks – malware and non-malware concerns – is second to none. We may be smaller sized but those that have actually utilized the assistance of Sucuri understand what the name means – Assurance and quality service.
