Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used 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 number of companies which create paid script applications, so when you obtain such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
