If they answer No to Analyze the page?, the suspicious link is not analyzed. They can then close the notification window. For their protection, they cannot access the page.
If they answer Yes, the page is analyzed using Forcepoint Email Security Cloud real-time advanced security analysis. They then receive one of the following messages. The notification messages can be customized. See Configure block and notification pages.
 
Users may also receive an Access denied notification if their organization does not permit them to browse uncategorized web pages.
