Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations that create paid script applications, so when you buy such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
