Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly because their core code is often not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are usually quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
