Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which 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 numerous organizations that develop paid script applications, so in case you get such an app for your website, you will probably 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 secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
