I believe "Protected Scope" is used in the Threat Prevention policy to designate an entity that you want protected (i.e. a single host, group of hosts, network, etc...). It is my understanding that this applies the protections in the policy to those nodes whether the malicious traffic is inbound or outbound. 

Whereas "Destination" would only apply the rule to traffic headed outbound.
