Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which 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 organizations which develop paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
