Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that develop paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
