Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many organizations that develop paid script apps, so if you purchase such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
