What, if anything, should be downloaded to protect Macs?

I recently made the switch to a Mac. This forum was great in helping me fix my spyware-infected PC several months ago, so I thought I'd come here for a basic question:

Is there a standard set of programs that Mac users should download to protect their computers? With PC's, you should at least have a firewall, anti-virus, and a spyware/adware remover. Is there anything comparable that Mac users should always use for protection? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
