Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations which develop paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
