Question Disable Messaging Notification on lock screen?

Due to our security policy at work we aren't allowed to have message or e-mail previews enabled on any phone. Honestly I don't like them anyway as someone could see your private information without even needing to unlock the phone. Given this, I have always had mine messaging preview option disabled. I would get a message and the blue light would blink and that was the only indication. Since taking 4.4.2 yesterday I get a notification on my lock screen that doesn't divulge any information other that "MESSAGING" as far as the content or who it's from, but I would like to completely remove this all together. I have searched online high and low and I do not have the "preview message" option enabled at all. Given this, has anyone successfully got that lock screen notification to go away? I read another post and someone said it is defaulted to appear in KitKat, can someone confirm?

You would have to disable it from the all applications menu in settings

Wrong. That disables all notifications for the messaging app. I just want the lock screen preview disabled.
