Explanation:
in IT texts, a construction of [verb form] + en + [noun] is often translatable as [verb] in [noun/p.p.] mode (e.g. en lecture = in read-only mode).

Your text may be a genuine case of "protected mode" (google it for explanations) or it could be that the writer was simply seeking another way to express "read-only" - will depend on fuller context.

agree  SusanMurray: in computing you would talk about files being 'protected'. Depending on the operating system or sotware used will depend on the exact terminology . Protect is general and common enough to cover all circumstances. Good luck for the rest.
