Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Many ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are generally speedier because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
