Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode 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 many organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available 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 will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
