Amazon MQ is now authorized as FedRAMP Moderate
Amazon MQ is now authorized as [**FedRAMP**](/compliance/fedramp/) Moderate in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon) Regions. Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for [Apache ActiveMQ](http://activemq.apache.org/components/classic/) and [RabbitMQ](https://www.rabbitmq.com/) that makes it easier to set up and operate message brokers on AWS. Amazon MQ reduces your operational responsibilities by managing the provisioning, setup, and maintenance of message brokers for you. Because Amazon MQ connects to your current applications with industry-standard APIs and protocols, you can more easily migrate to AWS without having to rewrite code.
