Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used because it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites that require the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
