Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations which make paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
