Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required 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 unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A large number of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work effectively because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are normally quicker because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
