Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function efficiently because their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are often faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
