Sucuri Company Meeting — Brazil 2014
For years now we have been asked why don't we change our name, if we only change our name we'd get more traction. We have been told how our name was not brandable or how it would never be accepted. But Sucuri the name has an important meaning to us.
The name has two meanings. First, “Sucuri” is Portuguese: it’s the name for the Anaconda found in the Brazilian Amazon. The Sucuri has a reputation for being big and dangerous, dominating its habitat. It has a life-span of 30 years and is recorded as the second largest snake in the world.
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 called Sucuri is a story in it of itself. Daniel, the man that has coded every line of code in our technology, was having an evening alone with his grandfather where he was sharing his thoughts on what he was building and how he was lost on what we should call it.
To understand and appreciate this story, you have to understand Daniel's family history, he comes from a long line of Brazilian military man. His grandfather being a retired Colonel in the Brazilian Army, specializing in tank / artillery warfare. So naturally his grandfather, after hearing Daniel's technological dream could see no other more fitting name than Sucuri. He went on to explain the deep rooted history of the tank destroyer and how the Brazilian Army had employed the tools during it's conflicts back in the day. After hearing the stories we could find no more fitting name, both as way to pay tribute to our history and a way to remind us of where this company was built.
So our little company was built, one line of code at a time under the name that is now known globally as one of the leading website security companies in the world. Causing heartburn to our competitors, and bringing a smile to our face as we hear the naysayers and supporters stumble over the pronunciation of the name.
Sucuri, like the Amazonian Anaconda and Tank Destroyer, believe in complete market dominance and believe it to be achievable through a relentless commitment to our People, Product and Industry. Our ability to destroy attacks, malware and non-malware issues is second to no company, we might be smaller but those that have employed the hep of Sucuri understand what the name means - Peace of mind and quality service.
