Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies which make paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
