Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app 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 numerous organizations that create paid script applications, so in case you get such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
