Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode 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 numerous organizations that develop paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change 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.
