Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations that develop paid script apps, so if you obtain such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
