Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application 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 many organizations which create paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
