Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt 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 numerous organizations that develop paid script apps, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
