Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations which make paid script apps, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
