Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known 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 a great number of companies that create paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an application 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 can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
