Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations which develop paid script apps, so in case you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
