Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular because it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server afterwards is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to work with any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the tool will perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
