Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode 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 a number of corporations that create paid script apps, so if you get such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
