Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that develop paid script applications, so if you buy such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
