Security info and tools for Hadoop?

When a company really wants to bring Hadoop into the enterprise, as a Hadooper we would want to make sure there are security policies and processes in place in front of the Hadoop [cluster]... can please lets us know or someone share experience or knowledge about security info and tools for Hadoop? Is Kerberos module for Apache the only option?
