According to an article on the site, "At Sucuri, we have been monitoring and engaging in web-based malware since 2004, evolving with the changes year by year. Our service is built around the passion and commitment we have to making a difference in the way the world fights web-based malware. We take pride in every site we work on, and work diligently to update our definitions and algorithms to stay ahead of the problem."

The company recently launched a website application firewall and intrusion protection service with virtual hardening and patching called CloudProxy.
