Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that make paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
