User Experience Enhancements

As part of the Cisco Common User Experience program, we are working towards a more uniform user experience and terminology alignment. This program runs across all Cisco security products.

 

A More Intuitive Cognitive Portal Design

In this release, we have redesigned the portal header, menus, and certain colors schemes to match the rest of the Cisco Advanced Threat portfolio.

Direct Feedback from the Cognitive Portal

Apart from the typical support channels that Cisco already offers, the Cognitive portal now includes a button that you can click to provide feedback directly to the Cognitive product team . This feedback can be anything from a feature request to a specific issue with the portal or an individual detection. You also have the option to leave your contact information for a follow-up.

 

Please note that this feedback is provided directly to the Cognitive product team and researchers in order to improve the capabilities of Cognitive. It is not a channel to request formal technical support. In order to obtain technical support according to Cisco SLAs, please open a case with Cisco TAC.
