Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of corporations that make paid script apps, so if you get such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
