Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies that create paid script apps, so if you obtain such an application for your website, you'll 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 protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
