Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function properly because their core code is often not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are generally faster as their code is already optimized and precompiled.
