Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run 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 purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which create paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
