Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations which develop paid script apps, so if you buy such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
