Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used 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 plenty of organizations that create paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
