Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encode 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 applications, so when you obtain such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
