  • Zend Encoder

    We're looking for opinions on Zend Encoder and any alternatives, if any. Have you ever used it, and is it worth the money (around $1000 IIRC).

    Thanks,
    Scott

    we have a Perpetual Plus license of Zend Encoder, though Chen and Kevin have been raving about the IonCube encoder.

        We had a license for the Zend Encoder about 1½ year ago.
        It was nice.. but if it would've supported the stuff it does today, that would be awesome :P
        (Licenses, host-locking etc)

        That said, it does cost a bit.
        If you have something that needs to be protected though, go for it.

          Add me to that list. Nick is a great guy, amazing support. It took me weeks to get replies from sale queries to Zend, i hate to think what support questions would be like.

            I enquired at Zend and 5 minutes later I had Sharon on the phone from Israel answering the questions that we had.

              Game Wizards: Since you already have MMCache, why not use it encoder, the decoder can be loaded via dl()

                Zend owns all!

                That truth being said, why would VB or HiveMail need an encoder? I mean doesn't VB distribute the source, and why encode things on the server if no one you don't know has access?

                  You're assuming that there aren't any other projects in development

                      And why exactly would you want to conceal the source

                        1) In the event of a hacked box, leaked source is bad.
                        2) Not all software is fit to be released with source
                        3) Might be working on highly critical code for a third party

                        Why exactly would you want to run a firewall infront of your computer?

                          I wanted to know the reasons why Vbulletin actually wants to use an encoder, not a list of reasons why you would at all, as I already know that.

                              See #1 & #2
                              I'd imagine having the sources for the CMS encoded is a good thing.
                              There's a bunch of glue in the CMS I've written that I certainly don't want others to copy -- definitely not before I might release it.
