Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed 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 plenty of companies that create paid script applications, so if you buy such an app for your website, you will most likely 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 program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
