An epic tale thousands of years in the making made its way to Super Bowl 57 with this question: What if a savvy, tablet-toting security guard outside the city of Troy was able to detect the Greek army inside the giant wooden horse at the gates?

“Behind every cyberattack is a human adversary, and we pioneered the adversary-focused approach to cybersecurity to protect every organization on the planet against the most sophisticated attacks,” said CrowdStrike chief marketing officer Jennifer Johnson. 

The spot was produced in-house by CrowdStrike in collaboration with Framestore, RadicalMedia and Union, and aired just before the halftime show.
