Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're 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 site. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively since their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are generally speedier because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
