Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular 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 plenty of corporations which make paid script applications, so in case you get such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
