Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available.

In addition, sites that need the tool can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.
