What is Zend Technologies Zend Guard?
Zend Guard provides communication and obfuscation technologies that protect against reverse engineering, copyright infringement, and unauthorized modification of your code.
Zend Guard allows you to encode, obfuscate, and protect your PHP code. This will prevent unlicensed reverse engineering.
Your code was a labor of love. It would help if you protected it today. Zend Guard's assertive communication and obfuscation technology prevent reverse engineering, copyright infringement, and unauthorized alteration.
Encoding refers to the process of converting PHP source code into an intermediate format that is easily readable. This is the same as PHP encryption. This arrangement is hard to understand and convert to source code. This protects your code against casual browsing. This means that individuals who have access to your website's regulations won't be able to use them for everyday purposes.
Obfuscation refers to a process where code is intentionally created and made difficult to read as source code, reverse-engineered code, or other code. This is to protect against unauthorized access to source code. These risks include the loss of intellectual property, simple probing for vulnerabilities in applications, and a lack of earnings. Programs can be reverse engineered, modified to bypass licensing, and then recompiled. It was a standard technology in computer applications. However, it is essential for calculating environments such as PHP that use speech components to process information rather than code that has been incorporated into machine language before being deployed.
Protect Your PHP Code From Unauthorized Use
Zend Guard's licensing capabilities allow Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to create various licensing policies for their commercial PHP software. Many popular licensing models are supported, including concurrent users, time-restricted, and sections of the community. This allows sellers to maximize their profits by preventing unauthorized use.
Zend Technologies Zend Guard Great Features:
Programmers can use Zend Guard to encode PHP code at any time during the creation process. This protects PHP code from being printed or distributed.
External code tampering can be avoided with obfuscation by Zend Server. It transforms the names and tags found in code documents into mysterious characters. External parties won't easily access your code, but your software will still work efficiently.
Converts plain-text PHP scripts into a platform-independent binary file called a 'Zend Intermediate Code.' These binary encoded files can be distributed instead of the text PHP, protecting your programming efforts. This PHP encryption procedure has many advantages:
- Modification of the inner PHP source code is prohibited.
- Zend Studio supports one-click encoding.
- Auto-detects PHP code components and indicates them (for instance, functions and techniques) to prevent them from obscuring, thereby significantly reducing development time.
PHP Encoding License Manager
Zend Guard License Manager increases revenue generation and strengthens defense.
You can choose from several licensing options, including concurrent customers, time-restricted or section-specific.
How the PHP Encoder works and how the PHP Obfuscator works
At runtime, the license document is available together with the embedded PHP. Licenses can be easily modified or removed without the need to create new applications. There are many flexible licensing options available for vendors:
- Concurrent Clients: Limitation on the number of real-time users
- Time-Restricted License: A license that is limited in time and used only for testing purposes.
- The Network segment: Licenses based on network topology are limited, and IP address range limits their use.
- Special Server: Permit limited to particular hardware according to Host ID
- Advanced Options: Add custom code to create advanced licensing options.
