Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to 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 website. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly since their core code is generally not free to change. Websites which use the tool are typically speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
