Microsoft (MSFT) has acquired PhoneFactor, a provider of enterprise authentication services. Microsoft plans on integrating PhoneFactor's solutions, which act as an alternative to hardware-based security tokens, with its business apps and cloud services. Meanwhile, The Next Web reports Microsoft, currently getting ready to launch Xbox Music, is in talks to acquire online music service Rdio, which has been struggling to compete with Spotify.
