CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm famous for its work in some historical data breaches, aired its first Super Bowl commercial about one of the earliest data breaches—the Trojan Horse.
CrowdStrike is perhaps best known for its role in analyzing the 2016 hack, which compromised documents from the Democratic National Committee during the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump presidential race. With its Super Bowl ad, CrowdStrike is promoting its data security work with private companies and entities, and warning of the rising risk of bad actors stealing data online.
“Cyberattacks and impacts are more pervasive than ever,” CrowdStrike said in a press release ahead of the game. “And the Super Bowl stage offers the unique opportunity to raise awareness on how adversary-focused threat protection is necessary to protect against sophisticated attacks.”
