Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encrypt 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 a lot of corporations that make paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
