Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to employ 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. A number of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work properly because their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are normally quicker as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
