Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies which develop paid script apps, so if you get such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
