Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations which develop paid script applications, so if you purchase 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're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
