Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that create paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
