Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
