Additional Information

Alternately you can to enable username/password:
In activemq.xml, file change:
        <managementContext>
            <managementContext connectorPort="11099" createConnector="true" />
        </managementContext>

To:
        <managementContext>
            <managementContext connectorPort="11099" createConnector="true" jmxDomainName="org.apache.activemq">
              <property xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans" name="environment">
                <map xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans">
                  <entry xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
                         key="jmx.remote.x.password.file"
                         value="${activemq.base}/conf/jmx.password"/>
                  <entry xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
                         key="jmx.remote.x.access.file"
                         value="${activemq.base}/conf/jmx.access"/>
                </map>
              </property>
            </managementContext>
        </managementContext>

edit conf/jmx.password to have a different password for admin.

After next upgrade is necessary to change the activemq.xml and jmx.password files
