Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you wish to employ any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
