Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations that create paid script apps, so when you get such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
