The results by all two programs looks like the same. With the difference that BitDefender have no support and Ikarus have a support. For the support I pay. For no support or a team with just a fluent English and not enough detail knowledge what they sale. I will not touch the free trial version.

NOD32 if you have a NON profit company (confirmation paper required) ~ 23 USD, 1 year updates. Is below 20 EUR. If use a pirated Security product must be crazy.
