Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to employ 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. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to function properly because their core code is often not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are generally quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
