Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app which 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 plenty of corporations that create paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
