Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode 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 a large number of corporations which create paid script applications, so when you buy such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
