Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations which make paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application 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 may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
