GEO Blocking - United States and US Territories

Hi all,

 

I have a policy that only permits access from "Unites States", will this permit access from Puerto Rico, Guam, Samoa, and US Virgin Islands? or do I have to explicitly add those regions to the policy?

 

Also, how do I go about updating the GEO IP database?

Don't mean to necro this, but is there anyone that could help answer this?

You happened to have found a wrong one while many others that have the answers are in this forum. Even in internet search I could find below KB almost at the top of the list.

For those islands, I would assume they're covered by "United States Minor Outlying Islands".

Also I found this KB for the Geo IP DB update in my internet search (Google) at the top of the search result:
