Of course if it supplied by work, then your up that creek without a paddle.
Even in this situation I disagree. If it is going against a corporate BES then an organization has absolutely the right to secure their data however they like with whatever policies they deem necessary. I know that is how my company views it.

While this measure might be a bit extreme and abviously annoying, such is the price of security sometimes. Only recourse is to discuss with your IT and Security dept and let them know they have gone too far.
