by May 23, 2024

Global insurtech company discovermarket has entered the Philippines market, introducing its new embedded personal cyber insurance product in collaboration with Globe Telecom.

This initiative aligns with the Philippines’ increasing digital activities, including mobile and internet usage, and the corresponding rise in cyber threats, as noted by discovermarket.

Telecom provider Globe has responded to this escalation in cybercrime by investing in enhanced cybersecurity measures through its partnership with discovermarket. The cyber insurance solution offered by discovermarket enables Globe to safeguard its customers against various online threats, such as shopping fraud, identity theft, and payment fraud.

This coverage, which extends up to 100,000 pesos (US$1,722), includes claims assistance services in the event of a cyber incident. It is available for both new and re-contracting subscribers of Globe Platinum Plans 3799, 4999, and 7999.
