WATERTOWN, MA--(Marketwire - January 27, 2010) - Sanbolic announced today that Bo Thurmond has joined Sanbolic. Mr. Thurmond will be responsible for managing the significant growth in customer revenue and channel partners experienced in 2009.

Mr. Thurmond was most recently responsible for emerging markets and WW channels at Mazu Networks which was purchased by Riverbed.
