Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations which make paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
