How to use Kace to turn off Office 365/2016 updates

Office 365 and 2016 run their own updates that bypass Windows Updates. We have a group policy to turn off Windows Updates but we just got burned by an Automatic Office update that went bad. I want to only get Office updates through Kace. I know we could install the Administrative Template for Office 2016 into our Group Policy Editor to turn it off but is there a way to do it though Kace? Possibly pushing a registry entry, which I don't know how to do yet :)

This can be set in Registry -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\ClickToRun\Configuration 

set UpdatesEnabled to false
