Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations which develop paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
