Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encrypt 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 plenty of organizations which develop paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
