Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations which make paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
