Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly as their core code is usually not free to change. Websites which use the tool are usually speedier because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
