I am not so sure how extensive use of IPSEC is for security though.

The main reason I use VPNs is that they are the only cross-platform means
of proxying the IP stack so you can access from different geo-IP locations.

I would not describe IPSEC as a standard as it is difficult enough to get
OpenVPN to talk to OpenVPN.
