Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations which develop paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it.
