Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you can employ Zend Guard and your code won't 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 require Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are normally faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
