During the verify operation, the PSoC Programmer reads the flash blocks from the target device and compares it with the hex file you have specified. Because the device security is in PROTECTED mode, the PSoC Programmer cannot read the flash. So, it will throw an error. You can try Verify Checksum operation which verifies the checksum of the target device with the hex file.
