Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that develop paid script apps, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
