Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly because their core code is generally not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are typically faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
