Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A lot of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly because their core code is usually not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
