Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that create paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
