Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations which make paid script apps, so if you purchase such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
