Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations which make paid script applications, so when you get such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
