Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app 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 make paid script apps, so if you acquire such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
