Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed 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 plenty of companies that develop paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
