Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you want to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of 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. Various pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively since their core code is often not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are generally quicker since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
