Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 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 companies which create paid script apps, so if you buy such an application for your website, you'll 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 shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
