Is there a way to stop company app from timing out?

Our company uses a proprietary Oracle Java app that logs out after 15 minutes of inactivity. I understand the need for security but this is ridiculous as I work out of my home office using a company VPN. It wouldn't be so bad except there are several steps required to log back in and we must use Internet Explorer to start the log-in process. I spend way too much time with this nonsense. Is there a way to fool the Oracle app to think I am still pressing keys? TIA

Try Caffeine.

I've used it on both Mac and Windows.

Doubt that you can install software. You might need a usb "jiggler." Don't know if they need any drivers thought.

ditto caffeine. I used that at my former work place which was Draconian regarding IT issues. Only now I realize how inadequate and antiquated that IT system was.
