Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you are 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 which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate efficiently as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are often faster since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
