Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which 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 great number of companies which create paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
