Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations that make paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
