Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode 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 a great number of companies that develop paid script apps, so if you purchase such an app for your website, 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 code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
