Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations which develop paid script applications, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
