Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations which make paid script applications, so in case you get such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
