Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you acquire 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're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
