Entertainment / Social sharing

Entertainment and social sites might be fun for their users, but for the IT and engineering teams who keep them running, it can sometimes be anything but. High-traffic sites like these attract bad actors externally, and nosy employees internally. Foxpass is critical for ensuring that stolen credentials are of little use, and that employees are restricted from accessing sensitive data of the site's users. (lots of bad press on this last point for uber and facebook)
