Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second 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 want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of 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. Lots of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate effectively because their core code is generally not free to change. Sites that use the tool are generally speedier since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
