Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which 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 a number of companies that create paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
