Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations that make paid script applications, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
