Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so when you get such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
