Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed 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 plenty of corporations that develop paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your site, you'll 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 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 usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
