Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of companies which create paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
