I don't have any first hand experience with that drive but it is my understanding that BitLocker To Go was hardware agnostic.

Hi.

That drive has a thunderbolt interface. I looked it up and http://it-tutorials.us/windows/optimizing-windows-8-security-(part-2)---bitlocker-and-bitlocker-to-go.aspx says, thunderbolt drives can be used.

Update.  I mistakenly purchased this for a PC.  Unfortunately, the WD Thunderbolt drives are for Mac's.  I didn't realize this until I opened the box.

Not only for Macs. Take http://www.infoworld.com/d/consumerization-of-it/not-just-macs-thunderbolt-rumbles-pcs-233786 as a reference. Of course your PC needs such an interface.
