Nope. No way around it if it's required by IT policy. They have a reason for it if they've implemented it.

If you're on a BES and they set an IT policy to require it, not much you can do. Sorry.

You can change the interval unless they set that as well.

the "feature" is there to protect the information on the device. when an IT policy is enabled, its usually for a good reason.
