Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you can use 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. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate properly since their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are usually quicker since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
