Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations which make paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an application for your site, 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 also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
