Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encode 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 a large number of companies that create paid script applications, so when you acquire such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
