Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode 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 a great number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
