Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encrypt 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 numerous corporations which make paid script applications, so in case you get such an app 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 also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
