Not that I'm aware though you might look at pgcrypto. Good crypto has to
compress first so there may be a possibility of just doing the compression.

Postgres also will automatically try to compress data like byteas if the
record is larger than 2kB (1/4 of the block size if you've changed the block
size). So you may not have to do anything if you're just looking to save space
on disk.
