Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular 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 many companies which develop paid script apps, so when you acquire 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 may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable 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 a lot faster.
