Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode 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 plenty of organizations that create paid script applications, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
