Most modern firewall systems can whitelist based on hostname.  This would be the RECOMMENDED method.  However you mention government here, so I totally get that it might not be a "modern" system!

You have two ways of applying updates if you cannot whitelist the hostname:

  1. Update manually by logging into the Client Center and downloading the latest version.  You can upload them manually and run the update at your convenience.
  2. Just before running an update, ping the hostname from the same instance.  In MOST cases, the IP is not going to change once assigned for several hours because of session affinity (sticky sessions).  Whitelist that IP address and then run the update as soon as possible after it is added.
