Risk Shell not only offers an easy workflow of creating user-defined assets, but also allows clients to create custom data fields. This enables clients to create their own data repository within the Risk Shell environment. The process of creating custom data is very easy due to an advanced GUI. Custom data repositories present virtual databases merged with vendor databases, though can only be accessed by their owners. Another way of working with user-defined assets is via the Database Integration program. Custom data sets differ from end-user integrated databases as shown below.
