Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to execute files encrypted 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 great number of corporations which create paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an app 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 protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
