NFS alternatives?

Hi folks,

I have a situation at work that is ideally solved by use of NFS (need for
a single logical file system underpinning a variety of servers and application
server clusters).  Since I'm looking for an infrastructure solution, NFS seems
like the perfect fit.

However, as I understand it, over the years there have been various 
concerns about security and vulnerabilities associated with NFS.

Are there any alternatives to NFS out there that provide the same type of
service, but, without the security concerns?  I'm working with our network
and system admin folks but want to make sure I do some of my own
digging around as well, to be more educated in my chats with them ;)
