Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is employed 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 lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, 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 also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
