Database Activity Streams for Amazon Aurora with MySQL compatibility provides a near real-time stream of database activities in your relational database. When integrated with third party database activity monitoring tools, Database Activity Streams can monitor and audit database activity to provide safeguards for your database and help you meet compliance and regulatory requirements.

Solutions built on top of Database Activity Streams can protect your database from internal and external threats. The collection, transmission, storage, and processing of database activity is managed outside your database, providing access control independent of your database users and admins. Your database activity is asynchronously pushed to an encrypted Amazon Kinesis data stream provisioned on behalf of your Aurora cluster.

Integrations with IBM Security Guardium, McAfee Data Center Security Suite, and Imperva SecureSphere Database Audit and Protection applications are coming soon for a seamless integration with the Kinesis stream. These partner applications can generate alerts and audit all activity in your Aurora database. 

You can learn more about Database Activity Streams with Aurora MySQL compatibility in the documentation and RDS security pages.

Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. For more information, please visit the Amazon Aurora product page.
