Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you want to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to use 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. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are typically faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
