Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations that make paid script applications, so when 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. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
