Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies that create paid script apps, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
