Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work properly because their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are generally quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
