I have looked through the IT policy and supporting documentation, but for the life of me, can't figure out how to disable Balance, if that option even exists.
Problem - with Balance, you can't setup the device NOT to lock after a max time of 60 minutes, from what we've tested. This is an issue when a user is driving - using voice control through hands free and the device has locked itself (Workspace), voice control will NOT find a contact in the Enterprise list. Don't ask me how I know.

For the security timeout - if you use the 1st entry which is a blank - it sets the device to 45 minutes, so there does not seem to be a way to remove the lock feature atogether.
Another reason to disable Balance for us, is because you can't set the policy to allow copying of certain text from enterprise to personal acounts, like the signature for example...
BBM is not available under published apps just yet, so you have to move back and forth from Work space to personal.
I find this very encumbering and not productive...
There are more reason for us to disable it, but you get the point....

We have about 30 OS10 devices (despite the 60 "normal" EMM Corporate) that we want to manage through the central BDS infrastructur but WITHOUT Blance, WITHOUT Regulated. We just want to do things like, lock, wipe, - basic EMM funktions, but we do NOT want to connect these devices to an internal ActiveSync service.
These devices are for freelancers that get phones from us but connect to there own mailservers via POP & IMAP.
We only need the possibility to lock and whipe (etc) this devices through central management console but
NO Balance and NO Regulated EMM because wo do not want a) separate EMM Corporate Dataplans b) no restrictions on these devices.
