Re: Issue 4: Restricting High-Risk Access & Transactions
Appreciate the point raised by you. Device-level security ensures that anything you do through any of the applications is done securely. But an app developer cannot think about user having such software and so each app developed should consider important security measures while developing an app, especially if the app is a web application.

Re: Issue 4: Restricting High-Risk Access & Transactions
Delaying the transactions would create user issues. People already have expectations on how the devices work in the consumer world and they expect the same at work.

Instead of delaying, combine a couple of these points with device level security. It is possible to place software on the device that detects threats and remediates based on policies set up in advance. The software will know if an application is spying on you or it elevates privileges after installing. It will also know if you are under a network attack like a man in the middle attack from someone on the network. If you concentrate on the device level security you can cover all of the issues stated above.

Issue 4: Restricting High-Risk Access & Transactions
The delaying of transactions is a tricky notion. Theoretically understandable, but similar to False Rejection Rate principles, you may run into much pushback if the delay becomes an issue to authorized users.
