Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work properly as their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are often quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
