Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application that 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 number of companies that create paid script applications, so when you purchase such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
