Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to 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 pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function efficiently because their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are usually speedier as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
