I was looking at the definitions of against and from to see if there might be a general rule of use for each phrase, but nothing jumped out at me. There are certain phrases that sound better to me by using one or the other word, but I can't put it into a general rule.

Protects from heat vs protects against heat risks?

Depends - an oven mitt will protect you from heat, but adequate hydration protects against increased risk of heat exhaustion. Clear as mud?
