Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that 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 a number of companies that develop paid script applications, so in case you buy such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
