Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed 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 lots of corporations that create paid script apps, so in case you get 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 are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
