Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that create paid script apps, so if you purchase such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites 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 a lot quicker.
