Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed 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 a large number of companies which develop paid script apps, so if you obtain such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
