Global insurtech company discovermarket has forayed into the Philippines market with the launch of its new embedded personal cyber insurance product in collaboration with Globe Telecom.  

This launch comes as the Philippines experiences a surge in digital activities including mobile and internet usage, and corresponding cyber threats, discovermarket said.  

Filipino telecom provider Globe has responded to this increase in cybercrime by investing in enhanced cybersecurity measures, such as through its alliance with discovermarket. 

The cyber insurance solution from discovermarket enables Globe to protect its customers against various online threats including shopping fraud, identity theft and payment fraud.  

This coverage extends up to 100,000 pesos ($1,722) and includes claims assistance services in case of a cyber incident.  

It is available for both new and re-contracting subscribers of Globe Platinum Plans 3799, 4999 and 7999.
