We are about to deploy our PHP web application in different branches of our company and I am looking for PHP code encoders as to protect our PHP scripts from tampering. I know that Zend Guard is probably the most ideal tool there is, but the-power-that-be wants me to look for other alternatives.
Have you guys got any suggestions or other alternatives? I have looked around and they all promised almost the same things it gets me confused =/.
Thank's in advance for the help :D
