Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known 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 many corporations that develop paid script apps, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you'll most likely 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 secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
