Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of companies which create paid script applications, so if you acquire 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 can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
