Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies which create paid script apps, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
