Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work properly as their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are normally speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
