That is the crankset that came standard on my Civia Hyland Rohloff, the double chainguard version. I do not see why it would not work with a rear derailleur but have no actual experience with doing so. Been fine so far but I have not heard of problems with any recent Shimano crankset. It is a two piece external cup bottom bracket crank as I presume that you are aware of.
The only consideration in my mind would be whether the chainline will be satisfactory. With the guards on both sides of the chainring, as on mine, I would think that the chain coming off would be very unlikely.
