Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies that develop paid script apps, so if you get such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
