Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will 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 website. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly as their core code is generally not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are often faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
