Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
