Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate efficiently as their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are typically quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
