Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you wish to protect your custom script, for instance, you can take advantage of 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 site. A number of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate effectively because their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are normally speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
