Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed 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 plenty of organizations that create paid script apps, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure 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 as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
