Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode 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 plenty of companies that develop paid script applications, so when you get such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it.

Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
