Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies which make paid script applications, so if you get such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that 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 quicker.
