Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations which make paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
