Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used 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 lot of corporations which create paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
