Denied Patches

  • I am curious - If a patch is denied with a patch policy, but then someone goes and runs Windows Update on their own from their computer. Could it install that denied patch since it isn't using Kaseya to install it? 

  • Absolutely, running Windows Update could install that denied patch.

    If you need to prevent this you need to look into registry / GPO settings to restrict access to the Windows Update feature, though we found this can interfere with Kaseyas ability to run patch scans, unfortunately.
