Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known 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 a large number of companies that make paid script applications, so if you get 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're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
