Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that 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 organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
