Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed 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 many organizations which make paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
