Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Lots of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work effectively as their core code is usually not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are typically quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.
