Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of companies which make paid script applications, so when you obtain such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
