Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many companies that create paid script apps, so if you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
