Work around of "enable anonymous" access for SharePoint site

We have an internal site (need to be sign on). We set "anonymous" to be disable in IIS. We cannot use "SharePoint Designer" to connect to the site because we go an error as KB2758431 descripted. Because we need to set "anonymous" to be disable to protect our data. Is there a work around for this? Please advise. Many thanks.

May I know what version of SharePoint are you using?
Note that SharePoint designer is no longer supported in newer version of SharePoint.

I used SharePoint Designer 2013 to access SharePoint 2016 site. It works on the other sites.

Hi @ErBoGuan-5484,

Currenlty there is no workaround for this.

As a supplement, after enabling anonymous authentication in IIS, we will not be able to access the site anonymously before configuring the anonymous access at the web application level and site level, so it will still protect your data.

We thought this before. However, my supervisor think we will do lot modification in the future. He wants to see if any work aground. Since MS set up that way for the current version, we have to follow. Thanks for your response.
