Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app 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 a lot of companies which develop paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it.

Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
