Default is it possible to run Prime95 on MacOS?

I'm running macOS Catalina version 10.15.5. When I try to download and run Prime95 I get a popup message '"Prime95" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software'. Is there a version of Prime95 that I can download that will run on my Mac?
