Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations that make paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an application for your site, you will 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 make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites 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 more quickly.
