Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that create paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
