Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which 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 a great number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so when you acquire such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
