Cisco, McAfee Channel Pro Alex Thurber Joins Watchguard

thurberalexCisco Systems (CSCO) and McAfee Channel Veteran Alex Thurber, most recently at TripWire, is joining Watchguard Technologies as VP of sales. Watchguard, a firewall and unified threat management (UTM) specialist, is a 100 percent pure channel company.

We could not reach Thurber, a former CRN Channel Chief, for comment. Nor did our resident blogger call Watchguard for comment because, um, the weekend has started. Besides, Thurber doesn’t officially start with the company until Monday — leaving us plenty of time to relax this weekend at Dorney Park (two great destinations for the price of one).

Perhaps between roller coaster rides we will call Thurber to see if he can confirm the rumored career change. But then again, our sources are rock-solid on this item. No need to check PRISM or Verizon phone records on this one, folks. Just call the main Watchguard phone number on Monday. Perhaps Thurber’s name will surface in the system…
