For years people have actually asked why we don’t change our name. We have actually been told that if we ‘d only change our name, we ‘d get more traction, which it’s not brandable, and would never ever be accepted. However Sucuri has an important meaning to us.
Initially, “sucuri” is a Portuguese word for the anaconda discovered in the Brazilian Amazon. The sucuri has a credibility for huging and hazardous, controling its habitat.
Second, it was the name provided 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 guy that has actually programmed every line of code in our innovation, was having a night alone with his grandpa. Daniel shared his thoughts on what he was building and how lost he was on exactly what to call it.
Understand Daniel’s household history originates 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 discuss the deeply rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army depended on its superiority during earlier conflicts. This name is as way to commemorate that history and remind us of where and how this business was developed.
So, one line of code at a time, Sucuri is now understood worldwide as one of the leading site security business in the world. We’ll confess 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 total market dominance that can be accomplished through an unrelenting commitment to our people, product and industry. Our ability to damage attacks – malware and non-malware issues – is second to none. We might be smaller sized but those that have used the help of Sucuri comprehend exactly what the name suggests – Assurance and quality service.
