Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies which develop paid script applications, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
