Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode 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 develop paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
