Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies that create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it.

Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
