Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many companies that develop paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
