Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that create paid script apps, so when you obtain such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
