Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies that create paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
