Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies that develop paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
