Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of 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. Numerous pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to function efficiently as their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are often speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
