Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations which develop paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
