Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encrypt 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 companies that develop paid script applications, so when you acquire such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
