"blender" can't be open cause it comes from undefined developer
your security preference allows installation of app only from mac app store and other developers identified.

Not a mac guy but...

It sounds like your security settings need to be adjusted to allow Blender to run. Maybe this can be done on a per-application basis?

How to do this is maybe a question for a mac forum.

Good luck!

I guess you need to disable the GateKeeper...

or Enable ANYWHERE option from the General Setting of your Mac:

It looks like this...

Allow applications downloaded from:

O Mac App Store
O Mac App Store and identified developers
• Anywhere

Blender is a safe App but be aware that you must be cautious when opening other Downloaded Apps. :D
