My company requires me to run MaaaS360 MDM on my device for email, and it detects root. However, I can't stand to go back to stock touchwiz. Looking for a rom that is stripped down of the bloat, but doesn't have root, if it exists? No touchwiz at all would be great, but I can always just put another launcher on myself.
You may be able to hide root. They are several apps on Google Play that are supposed to do exactly that. They basically act as a fire wall and route all requests to search for Superuser to run through the app, and only allow approved apps to see root. Their effectiveness varies. Try a few and see if you can find one that works.
As for a non rooted ROM, you can un-root any ROM. Find any ROM you like, install it. Then open Superuser settings and you should find an option to uninstall Superuser. Just click it and Superuser will remove itself.
You can always keep a flashable superuser.zip on your SD card too so you can reboot to recovery, flash superuser to get root if you need it to fix somthing, then unistall it again when you are done.
