Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are usually quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
