Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations which develop paid script apps, so in case you get such an app for your website, you'll 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 shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
