Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies that make paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
