Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to execute 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script apps, so when you purchase such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
