Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations that make paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
