Our

Story

Founded in 2010, Dr. Mohammed H. Omar and Samer M. Omar established VirtuPort with the objective of combining their over four decades of experience in the Middle East & North Africa to provide international companies a local partner to help ease their entry into this complex but lucrative market.

A result of our dedication and commitment, we have a solid reputation with plenty of ongoing relationships including contacts in every customer vertical, established, and successful resellers, regional value added distributors and key decision makers across those organizations. On a daily basis, we deliver sound cyber security services and business development opportunities with the focus of supporting the regions’ customers from cyber criminals.


Our experience allows us a better understanding of the regions infrastructure and a more open and honest means of communication. We are, in essence, your virtual team on the round in the region until you establish in-region resources. VirtuPort has also conducted successful information security conferences at MENA ISC and is changing the way people think of their professional brand through MorphLynx.
