Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies that develop paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
