Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread 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 that create paid script apps, so if you acquire such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
