    Default Factory Reset on BBSAK vs. Options>Security>Security Wipe

    Are these two actions same? I am trying to delete IT policies on my device...

    Yes, they both accomplish the same thing. Keep in mind, without a backup, you'll lose every personal item. Both settings and information. Since you'll have Desktop open anyway, use the reset option found when hitting the ? in the right top corner, then restore selectively from the backup made prior when done.

    Only the factory reset will remove an IT Policy... a Security Wipe will not.
    I don't believe you have any IT Policies to remove though. The reason you are only seeing BES email setup is because you don't have a  data plan.

    To check whether you have an IT Policy enabled, try this...

    Options > Device > Device and Status Information > type BUYR and scroll down to the bottom

    If you see IT Policy: disabled, then you don't have one.

    Thanks Phill! I should have specified the IT policy wouldn't be removed with the OP's methods.

    Are you saying that I cannot use BBSAK to remove an IT policy at all? I've tried the elevated command line method of loader.exe /resettofactory in Windows 8 x64 and get the "RIM Loader Console" with a blinking cursor and nothing else.
