Zend Guard, the most widely accepted
PHP encoding and obfuscation product on the market, protects your application
from unlicensed use and reverse engineering.
Zend Guard 透過以下方式讓軟體獲利率極大化:
You worked hard to develop your code.
Now you need to protect it. Zend Guard's powerful encoding and
obfuscation technologies prevent reverse engineering, copyright infringement
and unauthorized modification of your code.
Encoding is a process where the PHP source code is converted to an intermediate
machine readable format, just like PHP encryption. This format is hard
for humans to read and convert back to source code. As a result it
protects your code from casual browsing. This means that if people obtain
access to your site's code they will not be able to use that for unintended
Obfuscation is a process where the code is intentionally made very hard to read
as source code or as reverse engineered code. This obfuscation is
designed to manage risks that stem from unauthorized access to source code.
These risks include loss of intellectual property, ease of probing for
application vulnerabilities and loss of revenue that can result when
applications are reverse engineered, modified to circumvent licensing and then
recompiled. Although reverse engineering always existed in computer software,
it is especially important for in computing environments such as PHP which take
advantage of dynamic processing of language elements rather than code which has
been compiled into machine language before being deployed.
Zend Guard's licensing capabilities allow
Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to create a variety of licensing policies
for their commercial PHP applications. The product supports most commonly
used licensing models such as concurrent users, time limited, segment of
network, or server specific licensing. These capabilities allow vendors
to maximize their revenue by preventing unauthorized use.
Compiles and converts
the plain-text PHP scripts into a platform-independent binary format known as a
'Zend Intermediate Code' file. These encoded binary files can then be
distributed instead of the plain text PHP protecting your hard programming
efforts. Benefits of using this PHP encrypt process:
file, deployed along with the encoded PHP, is validated at runtime. Licenses
can be easily modified or renewed, without the need to deploy new software.
Vendors can pick-and-choose from a variety of flexible licensing models:
