Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you would like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of 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.

Websites that use the tool are generally faster since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
