Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
