Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to execute files encoded 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 copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate effectively as their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are typically faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
