Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations that create paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application for your site, you will 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 secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
