Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you can employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively because their core code is often not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are generally faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
