Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed 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 number of companies that make paid script apps, so if you purchase such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
