Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you can use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work properly as their core code is generally not free to change. Websites that use the tool are normally speedier since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
