Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application that 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 lot of companies which develop paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
