Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used 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 lots of organizations which make paid script apps, so in case you buy such an app for your website, you will 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 secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
