Encryption in the cloud

I have an Ipad 3 which I would like to use for work. However to do this I must be able to edit word docs which are encrypted in Boxcryptor in a Dropbox file. I have Documents to Go in which I can access my encrypted documents and edit them but must change the name of them to resave them back to the cloud. Documents to Go apparently opens files from Boxcryptor in read only mode so must change the name when they are uploaded after editing. My question is this. Is there any product or combination of products which will allow me to edit word docs and save them on the cloud in an encrypted folder with the same name every time I want to edit them

Android on my phone can do this via Office Suite Pro in Boxcryptor on Dropbox.

Hope this makes sense

Thanks for any help or advice you can give
