Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to execute 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 usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for instance, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Numerous ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function correctly because their core code is usually not free to change. Sites which use the tool are normally faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
