Protection policies define a set of objectives that apply to specific periods of time. These objectives drive configuration, active protection, and copy-data-management operations that satisfy the business requirements for the specified data. Each plan type has its own set of user objectives. Users with the system admin role can create protection policies.
PowerProtect Data Manager provides the following options when creating a Kubernetes cluster protection policy:

Also, the admin can select namespaces and associated PVCs statically or dynamically for inclusion or exclusion in protection policies, along with schedules, retention, and other protection operations.
