Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations that create paid script applications, so when you get such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
