I'm doing a cert in malware analysis and I'm looking for some up to date tools to automate detection of packing and encryption to aid the reversing process.

Encrypted and compressed data have high entropy. Tools for visualizing the entropy of information in binary files include binvis.io and binwalk.

If you're referring to native applications in particular then Detect it Easy is one of the better and more widely used options.
