Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that 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 a lot of companies that make paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
