You could look at http://www.iiscart.com/ to see if their IISProtect tool will do the job.  I can't vouch for it, but it allows you
to protect pages and (I assume) entire directories.  It bypasses the normal User Management system and works from a database.  Also,
Flicks Software has something called AuthentiX which might do the job for you.  I used their scaled down version (AuthentiX100?) and
it served well on one small project.
