Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encrypt 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 great number of companies which create paid script applications, so if you obtain such an app for your website, you'll probably 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 site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
