Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work effectively on a web server after that is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to use any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which need the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
