Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode 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 number of companies that develop paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an application 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 may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
