Does Kace support patching of Office 365 installs?

One of my biggest concerns about Office 365, is how to handle the patching.  We've been pretty happy with patching Windows and Office with the K1000, but Office 365 seems to be a different animal.  I've heard horror stories about the software launching massive updates at the worst possible time and I'm trying to avoid all of that.  Does the K1000 actually support patching of Office 365?  I'd love to turn off the automated updates and just let Kace handle keeping everything up to date, but I'm not finding anything that says that's possible.

According to their support site not currently:

"Currently, the K1000 patch feed does not offer patches for these two suites.

The K1000 patching vendor, HEAT Software, does not have the capability to include these patches in their feed.

For future consideration when it comes to patching Office 365, please visit the UserVoice Patching Support for Microsoft Office 365 and add votes, as to increase visibility.

Adobe does offer a tool to help patch the Creative Cloud applications as an alternative to the K1000."
