Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function properly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are usually faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
