Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that 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 number of corporations which create paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, 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 may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
