Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations which create paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an app 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 can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
