What other tools to consider? What do you use on OS X?

Check out the benchmarks available for free download from the Center for
Internet Security:
http://cisecurity.org/en-us/?route=downloads.benchmarks


Also, Bastille runs on Mac OS X:

If you're not comfortable tuning the ipfw firewall manually, check out
WaterRoof:

Last (yet should probably be first), three words: log, log, and log.
Set up logging to a central syslog server.  Basic *nix command line
skills combined with a few automated shells scrips will bring you very
far indeed.  If you want pretty graphs and layout, install Splunk
(though it's overkill for a single host):
