Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies which make paid script applications, so when you purchase such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
