Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations which make paid script apps, so in case you get such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
