Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encode 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 companies which develop paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
