Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which 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 companies which create paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
