Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function properly since their core code is generally not free to change. Sites which use the tool are usually speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
