Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations that make paid script applications, so when you obtain such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
