Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function correctly because their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are usually speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
