Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known 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 a number of organizations that create paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
