Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to run files encrypted 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. When you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work effectively since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are typically faster since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
