Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you're able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are generally speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
