Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea 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 when you acquire such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
