Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encrypt 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 lots of companies which develop paid script applications, so when you buy 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're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
