Today's topics include Microsoft beefing up Office's third-party cloud storage support, details on the new Chrome for iOS, Linaro will be releasing an open-source software platform for ARM servers, and Pindrop raised $75 million to advance technology that fights phone fraud.

This week Microsoft is making it easier for users to collaborate on Office documents stored on cloud file services, even if those services belong to other providers.

According to Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for Microsoft Office, real-time co-authoring with Office Online is now available for users whose documents are stored in Box, Citrix ShareFile, Dropbox and Egnyte. The company also announced that any other partner in the Cloud Storage Partner Program can enable real-time co-authoring using standard interfaces.

Google released a new version of its Chrome browser for Apple's iOS operating system that it says delivers significantly better performance and reliability than the previous browser version.

According to a Google product manager, iPhone and iPad users accustomed to dealing with frequent Chrome crashes on their devices will now experience far fewer such disruptions while using up less of their data plan when browsing the Web.

Google's new Chrome 48 for iOS is scheduled to become available this week.

When talking about ARM-based processors running in servers and other data center systems, the challenge has been as much getting the necessary software and ecosystem support together as it has ensuring the chips can handle the workloads.

Standards organization Linaro has been at the forefront of the effort to grow the software and firmware needed for ARM-based data center systems. Now the group is preparing to release an open-source software reference platform for servers powered by processors based on the 64-bit ARMv8-A architecture.

Phone fraud prevention vendor Pindrop Security has raised a new Series C $75 million round of funding, bringing total funding to date for the company to $122 million. The new round of financing will be used to help grow the company faster and to build new technologies to limit the risks of phone fraud and robocalls.

With the funding in place, Pindrop Security is set to expand its offerings into new areas. To date, Pindrop's core technology has been phone fingerprinting, which helps to identify devices by their acoustic signature, among other characteristics.
