Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate properly because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are typically faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
