Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations that make paid script applications, so when you purchase such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
