Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many companies which make paid script apps, so if you buy such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
