Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt 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 numerous corporations that develop paid script apps, so if you get such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
