Patch Management Exception Request

If an endpoint is required to maintain a non-current version of software for business functionality, a Patch Management Exception Request must be submitted and approved by the accountable CIO, and the Assistant Vice President of Security. An exception will completely remove the endpoint from Patch Management. All software maintenance will become the responsibility of the requestor. Endpoints used for software development or testing are eligible for an exception to automated Patch Management but will continue to be scanned and remediated for vulnerabilities.

Business applications that are used across the University may be temporarily excluded from Patch Management by Endpoint Management, until the service is updated.
