Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations which make paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
