Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files encoded 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 a great number of corporations that develop paid script apps, so in case you obtain 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 can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
