Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations that create paid script apps, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
