Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used 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 a number of corporations that create paid script apps, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
