Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode 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 lots of organizations that create paid script applications, so when you obtain such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
