RSA Product/Service Type: Security Analytics Server UI

IssueThe selected Browser Time Zone under Profile->Preferences->Application Settings observes Daylight Savings Time(DST) but there is no option to enable or disable DST.
ResolutionWhen the Daylight Savings Time starts and the selected time zone for the currently logged on user observe DST, Security Analytics server UI will automatically be updated to reflect the changes and display the correct current time.

For example, when Browser Time Zone is set to Australia/Sydney, the time appears as Australia/Sydney (GMT+10:00) when DST is off but when DST starts, the UI will start displaying the time zone as Australia/Sydney (GMT+11:00).
