Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode 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 make paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
