Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode 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 a large number of companies which develop paid script applications, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
