Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application 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 many companies which develop paid script apps, so when you purchase such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
