Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is 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 purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations which develop paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
