Indian Covid-19 vaccine manufacturer Dr Reddy’s Laboratories has isolated all its data centres after it suffered a cyber attack.

The company said that it isolated its data centre services to take required preventive actions.

Dr Reddy’s sites across the globe including those in the UK, Brazil, India, Russia and the US suffered the attack, BBC reported.

According to some sources, the company also temporarily shut down some of the production facilities as a precautionary measure.

Dr Reddy’s Laboratories chief information officer Mukesh Rathi said: “We are anticipating all services to be up within 24 hours and we do not foresee any major impact on our operations due to this incident.”
