Zend Optimizer is a popular 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 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom-made script, for example, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate efficiently since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are typically faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
