Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies that develop paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
