Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you would like to protect your custom script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of 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. Numerous ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work effectively because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are often faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
