Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of 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 large number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the tool are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
