Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your program code will not 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 apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function properly because their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are generally speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
