Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many organizations that make paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application 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 use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
