Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is needed to run 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 usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function properly because their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are usually faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
