Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many organizations that develop paid script apps, so if you get such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
