Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to execute files protected 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 program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of companies which make paid script apps, so when you acquire such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
