Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively as their core code is often not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are usually faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
