Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies which make paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
