Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies that create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
