Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
