Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to run files encrypted 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations that make paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an application for your site, 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 site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
