Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to use 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 website. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively because their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are typically faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
