Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of companies which develop paid script applications, so in case you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
