Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies which create paid script applications, so when you purchase such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
