Workaround to deploy CIS images on CSP subscription

I’m just getting my company going with Azure, and we are looking to deploy CIS hardened VMs from the marketplace. Unfortunately, when I go to deploy it, it says “This offer is not available for subscriptions from Microsoft Azure Cloud Solutions Providers”.

From the language, it sounds like it isn’t available from ANY CSP, versus “MY” CSP. Is there anything that can be done to get this going? We were considering deploying a fresh non-CSP subscription, spinning up a hardened VM, capturing a SysPrepped image, and deploying it as a standard VM. It seems like this would be running us in to all sorts of licensing issues, and I’m looking for a more elegant solution.

Thanks!
