Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies which make paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
