Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies which create paid script apps, so if you acquire such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
