Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that 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 lots of organizations that create paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you'll 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 ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
