Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you want to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are usually quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
