Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encrypt 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 lots of companies that make paid script apps, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
