Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations that make paid script apps, so when you purchase such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
