Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encode 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 a great number of companies that make paid script apps, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
