Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies that create paid script applications, so when you obtain such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable 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, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
