According to Infonetics, Cisco, CheckPoint, and Netscreen (Juniper) are now the IPsec VPN market leaders. However, when it comes to IPsec Remote Access, I run into Cisco, CheckPoint, and Nortel most often. Each of these RA VPN vendors ships paired IPsec VPN Client software.

SafeNet SoftRemote is probably the most common third-party IPsec VPN Client. Microsoft would argue that its VPN Clients are already on most desktops (PPTP for all Win32 desktop, IPsec for Windows XP/2000/2003).

Beyond this, the list is less obvious. You might try searching some market research websites (Gartner, Infonetics, IDC) for market share reports.
