Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work properly on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there.

In addition, sites that need the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
