Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode 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 make paid script apps, so if you acquire such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
