Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required 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 program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations that create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
