Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies that develop paid script apps, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
