Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

Bypass temporarily

If you only install unverified applications occasionally you may be interested in the following option. Hold down the Ctrl key before you click on the installer. Select open in the new, and on the next screen open anyway to continue with the installation of the non-verified application.

Disable Gatekeeper in Mac OS X Mountain Lion

To disable the Gatekeeper functionality completely you need to change security settings in the operating system. Open the System Preferences of the operating system, and select Security and Privacy there. Locate the allow applications downloaded from section and switch from the current setting to anywhere to allow all software installations on the operating system.

Thanks for this, just got a new iMac and installed Office 2008 but kept getting blocked from installing updates, seems to be working now but I'll probably switch back to App Store/Identified Developers after the updates are done, just to be secure.
