Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations which create paid script applications, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
