Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that make paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
