MERIDIAN, Idaho — The North American Aerospace Defense Command, known as "NORAD" works closely with one of the most famous people of all time, Santa Claus. Thanks to the cooperation of Mr. Claus, "Santa Tracking" has been made possible for decades. Santa Tracking has been a Christmas Eve tradition for children all over the world for over 60 years, but while tracking Santa is all fun and games, keeping him safe is what's most important. That's where Cradlepoint steps in. The Boise based business offers a secure network for NORAD, a military base in Colorado. Their secure software however does affect how or when you can access the Santa Tracking website, " they can go on to their iPad or their parents iPad or log into a computer and actually now use a website..." Todd Krautkremer, Chief Marketing Officer of Cradlepoint says.
Christmas Eve is only four days away, but someone from the North Pole needed a break from Christmas preparations and has a message for all the kids who plan on staying up all night for his arrival, "the earlier you go to bed, the earlier Santa can come and visit you. We do have some special technology- winking, blinking and nod we call it, but that's a method for us", Santa Claus. How else would he be able to see you when you're sleeping and know when you're awake?
