Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
