Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt 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 corporations that develop paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
