Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies that make paid script applications, so if you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
