Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of corporations which create paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
