Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so when you buy such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
