Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations that develop paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
