Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is employed 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 many organizations that develop 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. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
