Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations which develop paid script applications, so if you buy such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
