Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed 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 numerous organizations that make paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
