What are the top 10 VPN clients in use today?
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.
