Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations which make paid script applications, so when you buy such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
