Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encode 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 great number of corporations that develop paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
