Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encrypt 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 that create paid script apps, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
