Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you are able to use Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate efficiently because their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are often faster since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
