Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function efficiently since their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are normally faster because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
