Is there a usb/media encryption software that works on thin clients whislt on a Citrix server?

Hi All,
We plan to migrate to a thin client infrastructure connecting to a Citrix environment. At the moment we have encryption software in place but that needs to be installed on each client pc to work. By going to a thin client system we will not have the luxury of having an operating system that supports this. Is there a software that allows us to install it on Citrix farm servers but then is able to encrypt the usb drives that are connected to the thin clients?

similarly, safestick is mentioned to be alright with usb redirection.

We would most probably avoid using truecrypt in a corporate environment as it is quite complex for our end users to get their head around.

The problem of most encryption software that comes with a usb stick: the encrypted partition/drive can't be redirected via RDP, it must be local to the computer running the software. I had no success with Kingston and SanDisk (about a year ago, maybe their software got better).

I've read that SafeStick would work but haven't verified (http://www.blockmastersecurity.com/)
