    Bitdefender Internet Security uses their own Bitdefender Scanning engine and Program Interface

    BullGuard Internet Security uses the Bitdefender Scanning Engine also but uses their own Interface + the Outpost Firewall (not sure which Firewall Bitdefender uses)

    Think of it this way...

    you have 2 v8 Engines, very identical...... you put one of the engines in the body of a BMW car, and the other you put in a Porsche, essentially, their power is very similar

    I have used both and I can tell you one thing, stay away from BitDefender, if you must, get BullGuard (although I personally hadn't had good luck with their customer service, the program itself is light and effective)

    The modules/plugins in Bitdefender are developed in-house whereas for Bullguard, the AV engine, firewall and Behaviour Blocker are all out-sourced.

    Major differences include;

    BitDefender has a specific Safepay/Sandboxed browser for online banking/shopping whereas there is no equivalent in BullGuard at present.
    Repair may be better in BitDefender; http://www.av-test.org/en/tests/home-user/windows-7/mayjun-2012/

    In contrast, IME, Bullguard is more stable and someone here referred to BullGuard "as BitDefender without the bugs".

    IME again, BullGuard support is better and BGIS feels "lighter" than BDIS 2013.

    Both can be obtained cheaply in retail boxes on ebay, where previous versions can be updated to the recent ones.

    So overall there is not much difference between the two suites and your decision may simply come down to which one suits you and your computer(s).

    My advice, trial each one and see which one you prefer.
