Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom script, for instance, you can use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate effectively since their core code is generally not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are normally speedier since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
