Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations which develop paid script apps, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
