Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app 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 many companies that make paid script applications, so if you acquire such an app for your website, you will most likely 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 secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
