Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application 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 lot of organizations which create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
