Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations that create paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
