Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies which make paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
